kitchen crush {a grand scale}

When listing the qualities of an ideal kitchen rarely do "high ceilings" find the way on the list. After finding this charming kitchen full of modern touches I wonder why. The exposed chimney is the perfect visual cue to draw your eye up and show off the grand scale of this kitchen...

I love high ceilings on kitchen...

I used to think I wanted high ceilings in a kitchen until I actually met someone who had them. The whole thing is while stunning you have to remember the cleaning. She has to hire a professional crew to come in and clean the dust off the beams and cobwebs 15 feet in the air. So while a high ceiling is gorgeous, Im out!

What an amazing space. I am a huge fan of high ceilings that allow a room to fill up with light and dimension. The textures vs the smooth & sleek are perfect. Top marks from me!

Hope you are having a great start to the week.

Really great. Modern, rustic and absolutely inspiring!

Mango Furniture said...

Oh my! Massive chunky oak beams look stunning. What a breathtaking kitchen. Makes a nice change to seea good fusion between modern and rustic. Are those cast concrete counters too?

Craig Madders said...

i love this kitchen too. For me it is the rawness of the concrete bench tops and stone walls. A true working kitchen.

Kirsten said...
