Could it be that the pendulum of style is starting to swing again? The long affair with gritty, industrial-look kitchens—the more beaten up, the better—might be moving into a new, more genteel phase. This room keeps many of the hallmarks of the weathered design, but remains untouched by faux rust and artificially-distressed raw woods. Lightweight concrete counters, selectively painted door fronts, and galvanized barn door hardware on the base cabinets seem to comprise a bellwether of change—at least to me. lottocento.it
