Warm Weather, Warm Stone
Do you often feel your kitchen is too cold? Or clean and modern but not very warm? Spring is the perfect time to renovate your space and make some simple updates that can bring the warmth that everyone craves back into your home. The use of warm tones creates an inviting space for you and your family to enjoy all year long, from Summer to Spring!
Warmth and depth are brought to life in this modern kitchen design below with Madreperla Quartzite. The stones warm, earthen tones include cremes, soft grays, taupes and rusts. The veining lends itself to creating a sense of depth and thus an added warmth through texture.
Mixing materials is a great way to bring in warmth as well through depth and texture. Angie Keyes of Design Works Kitchen and Bath, made great use of materials to create a warm and inviting kitchen. Angie mixed in Nacarado Quartzite with its summery orange veining and neutral base color pairs perfectly with the hammered metal vent hood and wrought iron pot holder chandelier. The dark chocolate tiles arranged in a chevron pattern is a modern twist on a more traditional style kitchen and creates great visual interest.
Mark Williams of Mark Williams Design Associates transformed the Atlanta Homes & Lifestyle Home for the Holidays kitchen bringing in warmth to this white kitchen with the bookmatched Taj Mahal Quartzite behind the range and island. Mark masterfully mixed new and old within his design introducing fabrics in warm chocolate tones that enhance the more subtle natural stone and the darker wooden pantry pieces in the room.
