In a 200-year-old barn that she transported to coastal Rhode Island, designer Ellen Denisevich-Grickis created an eclectic kitchen setting: Rustic beams mix with a vibrant Shaker-style island, Murano-glass chandelier, and Viking stainless-steel appliances. The concrete floors are embedded with chips of mirror, mother-of-pearl, abalone shell, and sea glass.
I like the windows above the cabinets. Create the kitchen or bath of your dreams. By utilizing traditional, transitional and contemporary designs Lewis Builders can bring your dream kitchen or bath to reality. - www.lewisbuilder.com
stainless steel counter-tops are industrial and chic. If you want to incorporate darker cabinets....use them on the lower level. Dark cabinets can make the room very dark esp if you don't have natural and adequate lighting.
