Kitchen-love the white matte subway tile with the dark butcher block. Like I said -you take cheap butcher block and stain it dark for a rich and elegant look. Maybe add dark grout to the tile and colored cabinets?
AT THE ELM. Carpenter Crisow von Schulz constructed the cabinets in this Amsterdam houseboat kitchen from a single elm tree. The organically curving lines were intended as a contrast to the rectilinear architecture of the houseboat. Photo by: Rene Mesman
Framed palm leaves via Coastal Living Beach House 2011 (the back-splash adds a great pop of color and texture to this white on white kitchen! and what a great idea to use the leaves framed at inexpensive art)
