Interiors by Darren James has blown us away with the East Meets West Kitchen, a beautiful fusion of classic Japanese design principals and contemporary functionality. This modern kitchen will inspire you – here, negative space is just as beautiful as the positive.
A slightly dropped ceiling illuminated with recessed lights helps to define the kitchen area. A spacious island with cantilevered breakfast bar provides ample workspace, each surface visually anchored by two gorgeous custom pendant lamps. Solid wood stools add an organic touch.
Recessed handles, clean lines, and uncomplicated materials lend the cabinetry and appliances a certain minimalistic appeal. Most designers attempt to “work around” these kitchen staples but here they carry the design almost by themselves. To further the sense of simplicity, the fridge and dry good are stored in a butler’s pantry hidden behind gorgeous rice paper glass doors.
Our favorite kitchen design feature is the storage surrounding the ovens – an opening between each drawer face echoes the shelves above to weave a pattern from negative space. Dramatic lines allow otherwise subtle decorations to draw the eye. What do you love about the East Meets West Kitchen Design from Darren James?
