Warm Industrial Kitchen Design
When I recently learned about Big Chill, I was inspired to design a kitchen around one of their stoves. I ended up falling head over heels for two of their stoves, so I just had to design two kitchens!
The first was a retro cottage kitchen designed around a charming blue stove.
The other stove that made me swoon was the Classic Stove in stainless and brushed brass. This is such a unique piece that sets my heart a-flutter with the mixed metallic finishes. Here’s how kitchen design #2 came together…
First, a close-up of this industrial kitchen’s superstar, the Classic Stove in stainless steel and brushed brass. Irresistible. And this is where I should state that I’m not getting paid to say any of this. I just love this stove.
Next up in the kitchen, I tied in the brushed brass finish with the faucet and the cabinet pulls. The faucet is the Delta Single Handle Pull-Down Kitchen Faucet.
While I love this stove’s strong industrial vibe, I chose to soften the look with some warm colors and natural materials.
The shaker cabinets from Ikea have a painted grey finish that pairs smartly with the brass pulls.
And above these sleek cabinets, I included floating shelves made from reclaimed wood. The organic material against the steel is a pairing that evokes industrial loft living.
These carrara marble subway tiles made an appearance in the retro cottage kitchen, too. I love how versatile they are.
The final accents in this kitchen bring in some warm color and pattern to liven up the space. Orange is a strong statement, but it works well with the warm colors in the brass, and these accent pieces will be easy to replace, if you ever want to change up the look.
This is Braemore’s Big and Bold Ikat that could be used for a valance, cushions, or tea towels.
And finally, Tabouret Tangerine Counter Stools. These stools come in a rainbow of colors, and I love this one.
So, another kitchen inspiration for you! Bon Appetit!
