Nuanced Neutrals

In this kitchen, the color palette may be on a tight rein, but the number of finishes and textures—slick polished concrete and its rough-edged, wood-formed variant; bleached, matte wood; glazed ceramic tile; high-gloss paint—keep the eye well occupied. The mind, too, particularly if you're at ease in a contemplative space. I appreciate how this project has me both chilling out and exercising my critical faculties.
