Muted gray cabinetry with a distressed finish and open shelves reinforce the rooms openness. The stainless steel appliances and sink add a sleek, metallic luster, and even the honed travertine marble countertops have lightness to them.
Once we open up the kitchen/dining/living, we'll have to choose a color to flow through all three spaces. The pale blue/green walls with a darker color on the island should work well. Love the blue/green subway tile too.
