An Understated, Elegant Kitchen

The kitchen’s colors draw on the Belgian scheme of subtle greens, grays, and taupes to maintain the light feel; and the restrained accents focus on natural and useful items, such as books, to create a lived-in but uncluttered look. The furnishings have clean lines and plain linen upholstery without patterns. A splash of daring is displayed in the chandelier, but this and lantern light fixtures are part of the Belgian design tradition as well.
