High-Contrast Traditional Kitchen

Senior design editor Cameron MacNeil added function and fashion to this space with a crisp palette.

Cameron chose classic white cabinets to contrast with the dark Hanstone countertop and graphic rug. Handmade water-hued tiles add gorgeous texture and shine. Larger industrial-inspired stainless-steel appliances make cooking easier and elevate the look of the generously sized kitchen. The cabinets around the fridge were built out to give it a more custom look without the expense of a counter-depth unit. Deep drawers for pots on either side of the stove make reaching things much easier.
