From country casual to sleek and modern… Today, Home Decor Ideas wants to give you some tips to decorate your kitchen in order to enter in 2015 with a new fresh style in your luxury home. Take a look into these designer’s ideas!
Blue and White
Meant to evoke the great service kitchens of the past, this Chicago kitchen has a tiled barrel-vault ceiling and rough-coat plaster walls that designer Steven Gambrel calls “decidedly back of house.” For cozy but stylish dining, Saarinen-inspired brass bases by Julian Chichester were paired with a custom concrete top from Soupcan. Bistro chairs, Serena & Lily.
Open shelves for display break up the cabinetry in this Lake Michigan home’s kitchen. Designer Martin Horner chose blue mercury-glass pendants from Gallery L7 to pick up the color theme and the home’s exotic style. English sabre-leg counter stools from the Sterling Collection.
Pine and Iron
In this coastal Connecticut kitchen by Susan Drake, color of the finish on the cabinets changes with the light, but the gray undertones blend in with the antique iron pendants from John Rosselli and the custom rolled-steel hood. Wolf cooktop with grill. The Kensington bar stools made by Arhaus are made from reclaimed pine and iron.
Kitchen walls are sheathed in subway tiles “like the French bakeries I love,” designer and owner Jeannette Whitson says of her Nashville house. “And I designed long, shallow drawers like those in old English servants’ quarters.” The nine-and-a-half-foot island is topped with Calacatta marble and has a sink fitted with a Waterstone Gantry faucet. A custom steel hood is paired with a Lacanche range.
Madrona tree-trunk columns bring the forest outside into the kitchen of a Pacific Northwest house decorated by Markham Roberts. The lower kitchen cabinets continue the warm spirit of wood. A larger version of the living room’s galvanized lights hangs above a honed-granite counter and a Dacor oven. Stove top by Thermador.

In a Birmingham, Alabama, apartment decorated by Doug Davis and Hannon Kirk Doody, an entire wall of the kitchen is clad in Calacatta Gold marble tiles from Kenny & Company and laid in a chevron pattern for extra drama. Simple slabs of the same marble cover the countertops and island. The cabinet’s distressed louvered doors with bronze Cremone bolt hardware, a custom design, add a feeling of age to the room. Custom cabinetry is painted in Benjamin Moore’s White Dove with Lucite knobs and pulls from Decor Island.
Colorful Farmhouse Kitchen
“It’s a classic farmhouse kitchen, but the colors are idiosyncratic, personal, and much more vibrant than the standard white or gray,” designer Kari McCabe says of a house in New England. A 19th-century American table is surrounded by Crate & Barrel Village chairs. Cabinets in Benjamin Moore’s Stratton Blue. Walls in Green Ground, floor in Carriage Green, both by Farrow & Ball. See page 128 to get the look.
Warmth and Sparkle
Because of the open floor plan in a Manhattan apartment, designer Amanda Nisbet brought the dining banquette’s Macassar wood to the kitchen island for balance and flow, and to inject another dose of warmth to the modern space. Silvery La Leaf Antique Gloss field tiles from Artistic Tile and Tom Dixon Mirror Ball pendants provide sparkle.
