With the world around us becoming more and more urbane with each passing day, the heart often longs for simpler times and some country-style goodness. Crafted with ingenious style and exclusive modularity by Marchi, Doria is a kitchen that effortlessly blends timeless rustic beauty with the inimitable allure of Mediterranean design. The many intricate details of Doria bring together a distinct artisanal touch, a captivating modular country-style approach, and of course accents, hues and finishes that evoke images of a lazy summer evening in an exotic Mediterranean retreat.
There are plenty of ways in which you can usher in a color of your choice and the next lovely kitchen reminds you that color is not the only option. It is the exclusive kitchen worktops that bring in the gray while yellow sets the mood for an inviting, tropical hub that looks over the pool area outside. A perfect kitchen indeed for the warm summer months ahead.
Now here is a kitchen that tells you that the yellow and gray kitchen is not just for spring, summer or fall. It is a style that works all year long when done right, and we absolutely adore how the all-gray backdrop (including the wallpapered ceiling) lets those yellow pendants shine through. Another advantage of taking this approach is that you can essentially switch out those pendants (and the flowers) and add a completely different hue by bringing bright red, blue or even copper lighting fixtures. Adding a hint of gray and yellow to your existing kitchen can also be done without actually giving it a complete makeover. Instead of wrapping up the entire kitchen in these two hues alone, opt for a more reserved approach like the one here. The subway tiles in gray and yellow add color to this contemporary kitchen while leaving the Midcentury style of the space undisturbed.
While some kitchens tend to revel in a flood of yellow and others look great when gray takes over the lead role, there are times when you need a perfect balance between both hues to create your dream kitchen. Yellow plays a major role in kitchens with styles ranging from rustic and farmhouse to Mediterranean and Craftsman. Gray on the other hand brings the urbane appeal of contemporary and transitional styles and even looks perfectly at home in industrial settings. It is often the style you choose that will determine which of the two colors plays the protagonist in your kitchen.
Despite its country style and rustic aesthetics, Doria does not cut back on comfort and modern functionality. Instead features such as the refrigerator and cooking hood are elegantly concealed by painted cabinets to ensure that they do not disturb the wonderful narrative. Stone sinks, earthenware pots and other subtle touches such as the rod for hanging utensils ensure that your kitchen becomes a portal that takes you back in time to a colorful countryside somewhere in the Mediterranean.
Thinking of giving your kitchen a refined and refreshing makeover as you head into summer and fall? Few colors out there bring that perfect balance between sophistication and eye-catching elegance like gray and yellow. A combination that is quickly catching on across the globe largely because of the new-found love for gray in the last few years, it is still a novelty when it comes to the contemporary kitchen. While gorgeous gray and yellow bedrooms and stylish living rooms with this classy color duo are far easier to find, kitchens still seem to be largely stuck in the ‘white along with bright color’ mode.
