Elegant & Exotic Kitchen

Add interest by mixing and matching pieces found on world travels.

A black island provides a furniture-like focal point in this kitchen. Woven stools, kudu horns and a screen made of antique chinoiserie wallpaper also add a global feeling to the space. Pine wood floors look like bare wood when treated to a pickling stain, which helps imbue the space with a sense of airy lightness.
