Why This Room Caught My Eye

22 October 2012 1


I bet you are a big Pinterest fan just as I am. Well, sometimes I get lost in the visual spheres of Pinterest and browse through dozens (hundreds?) of inspiring pictures. And it always happens that my eye gets caught by certain rooms. Now, I’ve decided to share these rooms on a regular basis here and give you a very brief explanation why that room caught my eye. I hope you will like it!

I am starting this new little blog series with this amazing kitchen picture. So what caught my eye? It’s basically three main reasons:
  • Wooden Planks & Beams: The wooden planks on the ceiling and floor as well as the beams add a rustic, country style feel to this little kitchen.
  • Stainless Steel Surfaces: The stainless steel fronts and countertops act as a contrasting juxtaposition to the rustic feel of the wood. This triggers visual interest in such a small space.
  • Colourful Display: The happy displaying of colourful kitchen accessories spices up the whole kitchen by adding a very individual style and focal point for the eye of the beholder.
This kitchen could be a happy kitchen of mine! Anything that catches your eye?

    Fantastic illustration! I too love the wooden plank and beam ceiling … i think that’s the only way I can get a compromise with Chris as well with his love of wood and my love of painted wood. Lol. ..

    those SS appliances are to die for, Chris will love them too!

    as for colorful display … Igor you and I need to go shopping next time I am in town!

    Great idea, Igor!
    It’s always so interesting and inspiring to learn, why someone loves a certain interior and which elements are the ones, that are able to catch eyes.

    And about pinterest you are so right. Seems sometime we all almost get lost in this sphere and found ourselves browsing and browsing through this inspiring world. But I really love it!
