Kitchen Reinvention

4 easy ways to make bold design statements in your kitchen


Rustic Refinement

To add a little country chic to your kitchen, incorporate layers of rustic and industrial finishes, such as copper, steel, and wood. When it comes to color, keep it warm.  Biscayne runner, $69.95, Crate & Barrel; industrial stool, $169, West Elm; hammered copper-finish metal shade, $129, Shades of Light; Interlude, $48-$58, Oceanside Glasstile.

Contemporary Casual

Contemporary accents such as a bold, stainless steel backsplash or an oversized lampshade pendant in a block-print pattern will update an everyday space while still offering a homey feel.  Savannah cane runner, $99, and Felix 24" walnut counter stool, $119, Crate & Barrel; Smokebush, lace pendant lamp, $499, Room & Board; stainless steel tile, $22 per square foot, The Five Elements.

Easy Elegance

For a dash of the sleek and sophisticated, gravitate toward clean finishes and a basic white palette. Layer on geometric shapes and soft accent colors for a modern vibe.  Harper runner, $49.95, and Pullman 24" pearl leather counter stool, $279, Crate & Barrel; square wire lattice geo pendant, $285, Shades of Light; Harmonia Levity tile, $34-$44 per square foot, Oceanside Glasstile.

Retro Revival

For a more timeless feel, choose accents that offer an updated approach to tried-and-true patterns and shapes. An eclectic print rug paired with a tinted bulb pendant and classic bistro stools is a thoughtful nod to various design eras.  Mantadia rug, $248, Anthropologie; Vienna black barstools, $179, Crate & Barrel; bubbled bell pendant, $798, Anthropologie; sage-green glass tile, $15 per square foot, The Five Elements.
