When it comes to the kitchen we all want to achieve that knock-out space: you know, the one room that really wows your guests. No matter how big or small the space you have to play with, think about choosing one key element and allowing it to shine through. Texture, pattern and colour are three elements that you can use to centre a kitchen scheme around; mix and match elements or, just stick to one to create a striking space. I love how the patterned splash back (2) sends an everyday, average space rocketing up into the rafters of the style stakes. Whilst the reclaimed wooden surfaces (1) speak volumes: class, character and cosiness from one texture alone. Have you used any of these elements in your own kitchen?
