So I love personality in a kitchen, and I love kitchens that don’t look like everybody else’s kitchen. I love eclectic kitchens – kitchens that “mix it up a bit” with multiple styles and finishes and colors. And I love kitchens that tell a story (as Paul Anater over at Kitchen and Residential Design put it this week in his posts about kitchen story boards). I love the use of unique furniture pieces, or art work, or dramatic color… anything that makes it different.
It’s funny… my tastes in general tend to be more simple and modern, but there is something warm and comfortable about an eclectic kitchen with a little color and maybe even a bit of country to it. It makes me want to meet the owner and listen to the story of their kitchen, directly from them.
