Anyone with a Pinterest account can find kitchen inspiration. We love a good modern classic look for sure, but a minimalist kitchen has sense of welcome to it that can’t be replaced. Here, warm wooden details complement the whitewashed finish of this rustic kitchen, where the absence of a multitude of decorative accents is supplemented by organic textures and natural pieces.

Minimally decked kitchens can often run the risk of lacking life or warmth, especially when an exclusively contemporary aesthetic is in place. Utilize natural materials such as wood or greenery to instill a soulful element to the decor. Here, a two tone scheme, reserved for the cabinets, provides a unique element to the space.

A stainless steel backsplash is only a logical complement to a black kitchen surround, right? Note how the cabinets are extended high up along the walls, to impart the illusion of higher ceilings.

What this mod kitchen may lack in terms of decorative elements, it certainly makes up for in the scope of design through its many unique and eye-catching features. Case in point? The lustrously clear globe pendants and the trio of colors that make up the cabinets and counters.
