How are we on this fine Thursday, guys? In-between the many rain showers I got a glimpse of the sun and if that wasn’t enough to make this day great, I am sharing a new kitchen of the week. Well, actually two. Swedish Kitchen Company Nordiska Kök has done it again, creating two bespoke oak kitchens, inspired by nature and the modern lifestyle of today. Two kitchens, but with completely different appearances.
The painted oak is a linear, nature-inspired oak kitchen has been painted in a moody dark blue color, where the oak shine through and creates a surface that catches the light.
Above shelf cabinets in dark-stained oak creates an interesting contrast to the blue and some shelves have been left open to create further life in the kitchen. The countertop, a limestone in a cold tone, creates harmony with the cabinets and together with the warm oak they enhance the modern feel of the kitchen.
In a more subtle version is the urban oak version with strict lines where the minimalist light meets the warm, rustic tone of the oak, we have created a personal and timeless
kitchen, suitable for the urban apartment. The push open cabinets in a in-frame design, utilizing the entire ceiling height creating enough storage, even in a smaller kitchen. And again, providing the opportunity to create a personal expression thanks to the open shelves.
The countertop, a sand-colored Jura limestone, harmonizes with the warm oak and creates an interesting contrast to the painted light cabinets.
