Seeing Spots

Inset cabinets and drawers, painted in a muted palette; the farmhouse sink fitted with ye olde bridge tap; crown molding and cafe curtains—they all add up to a rather straight-laced space. But then the pebble-tile floor enters the picture and shakes things up a bit [much to my personal relief]. The dense yet random pattern is a wholly unexpected design element in the kitchen, and as such really succeeds in imparting a cheeky character to the room.
