Sometimes it is sheer simplicity that catches my eye. In a world where visual cues are exuberant, a quite setting attracts my attention pretty quickly. Especially when there is one or two little style elements that add that dash of sophistication to a simple interior design. When I spotted this kitchen, I felt like I would love to sit there on the table, have a cup of coffee, flip through a few favorite interiors magazines and let the day pass by. As simple as that. But what caught my eye in detail? Here are three points:
- Industrial Pendant: Lighting is essential in any interior and one of the most important interior design elements. Kitchens seem to be the ideal place for vintage, weathered industrial pendants. Probably because they evoke some fantasies of a large bakery from the past. Or the image of a large French cuisine from the late 19th century? I don’t know what, but it always works.
- Tiled Wall: Metro or subway tiles have really made a grand entrance in the interior design scene. Mostly, tiles were used for the splashback in kitchens. But an entire tiled feature wall? Pretty cool!
- Black Eames Chairs: In this rather simple kitchen void of clutter, a design classic makes a stark statement: they reveal the owner’s sense for design and style. And opting for simple, black Eames chairs is the best option to underline the sophisticated, calm look of this kitchen.
