A brick backdrop lends an urban touch to the rustic-meets-glam decor, complete with copper-plated accents for an elevated feel.

Brass fixtures provide an elegant contrast to the nearly exclusive paint palette of smokey grays featuring a hint of blue undertones.

When it comes to bringing color to the kitchen, consider a vibrant hue for the cabinets, set against whitewashed walls and graphic wall art of a complementary palette.

A matte black surround (note how it cleverly extends beyond the cabinets and on to the backsplash) sets a daring tone atop the limited elements of this contemporary kitchen.

Statement fixtures in a sleek gold-wash inspire elegance within this refined space.

A navy-stained, wood-paneled counter inspires warmth within the clean-cut elements of this contemporary space. A sporadic mix of greens emulate an earthy essence to the decor.

We can’t keep our eyes off the inspired architectural design of this elegantly modern kitchen. A stylish pairing of butcher block counter tops (the perfect surface for the home cook) and the subway tile backsplash are elevated by the polished finish of the cabinets.

A captivating backsplash lends a subtle touch of contrast in color and texture to the monotone elements of this urban space.

The smooth, patina copper finish of the cabinets inspires a bold contrast against the romantic details of this Parisian kitchen.

Create a sense of depth within a monochrome space with a mix of intricate patterns and metallic accents.

Rethink the classic two-toned kitchen design, by extending the marbled surface along the length of the cabinet surround. Recreate the look with marbled contact paper, for a more budget-friendly approach.

@roajumadesign

A marbled backsplash, which extends down to the counters, sets the groundwork for the smokey gray cabinets of a matte finish.

@archdigest

A modern setting that exudes pure sophistication through polished details and mirrored elements.

A farmhouse sink evokes a country chic aesthetic against the modern accents of a monochrome space.

No kitchen is complete without a view, and the floor-to-ceiling installation in this streamlined space is certainly proof.
