two very different settings of kitchen using same color & material palette: brass hardware, gray cabinets and marble countertop, and both kitchens look amazingly chic. love the simplicity and the accent of brass hardware.

white vs. black, which one is more of your type?

it is hard to believe we’re now arriving at the month of october, the last quarter of 2016. didn’t we just pop the champagne and say hello to 2016?? crazy. and i am so excited to finally have some time to be back to the blogsphere.

here is a gorgeous apartment for sale (and sold!) from goteborg, sweden. subway tile with darker grout creates a sharper definition in this very light tone kitchen… and that white and gold hardware  combination is just so irresistibly good.

happy monday!

love the refreshing combination of two shades of blue kitchen cabinets with gold/brass and leather material. together with the backdrop of simple square subway tile (only tiled 3/4 of the wall) and marble countertop – such a beautiful modern take of farmhouse palate.

gray gray gray. the combination of gray and wood makes a calming interior atmosphere. my favorite corner? the kitchen. love the stainless steel cabinets with marble counter top, with subway tile as back splash on gray wall.

a cozy interior with lots white just in time for summer.

my favorite corner is the living room with the string shelving system along the hallway. plus you can’t go wrong with the light wood floor.

to be honest the use of gray kitchen cabinets with marble countertop sometimes can seem too ‘suburban’. yet the compact layout, the wall organizers, plus black grout for the subway tile — this small kitchen from Göteborg, sweden has a rather urban-cool vibe.
