Maybe it’s in reaction to the world being so saturated with all WHITE KITCHENS, but I find myself attracted to EARTHY STAINED CABINETS recently. When doing stained wood in a kitchen I love it rich: not too dark (espresso) not too light ( bleached) Those looks, while lovely, seemed more trendy to me, and thus prone to lookin dated down the road. I’d rather have a natural stained walnut or weathered reclaimed wood. Something organic and natural. The stained wood cabinet looks best on a modern door- slab or something with minimal embellishment. Pair it with a light counter, modern fixutres, perhaps an unexpected pattern and you have yourself one chic kitchen.

That island! I love a mix of wood and metal.
