Kitchen Cool

A kitchen / dining space that combines warehouse chic and safari style with magnetic results.  We'd like to hang out here! Quite unusual to have a zebra rug (oval shaped no less), provencal style chairs, off beat art and city slick pendant lighting all thrown together in a kitchen area.  But the white walls and cabinets provide a crisp backdrop to these cheeky and eclectic references and the colour family remains consistent throughout. 

  • Notice how the overall whiteness and colour splashes are balanced by the natural tones in the chairs, floor and rug. 
  • Pendant lights over a dining table helps define a space, add workspace and meal time lighting of course but also direct our gaze upwards increasing the sense of loftiness in a room.
  • Don't be afraid to re-purpose and re-home.  The ladder in the kitchen looks great, is unusual and yet very practical for reaching hard to find items.  If you have the ceiling height, try adding a long, painted ladder to your kitchen for extra style points.
  • Add the unexpected and give your space the edge. Here, the strangely attractive clown art makes a talking point and adds an extra dimension.

Eco Chic has some suggestions:  check out our Chandeliers and Pendants for dining style; our Valmont dining table would look fab in such a space; browse through our Art section for inspiration and our Rugs offer many funky options for kitchens and beyond.
