What about stunning navy kitchens?

Let’s start with balance which is the distribution of the visual weight of objects, colors, textures and space. On a recent powder room design, a client requested that tile be installed above the vanity all the way up the wall and considered tiling the entire wall not just above the vanity. The powder room being very small could only visually support a small amount of tile without making the space feel bulky or heavy. Based on the principle of balance, we chose less is more and decided not to do the entire wall. We also thought about the pendant lights we chose, again wanting to keep the room balanced we chose streamlined lamps that had very little bulk and clear glass to keep the balance of the space bright. These decisions helped the design of this small room feel spacious even with the lack of square footage.

Getting into the rhythm. The easiest way to create rhythm in a space is to repeat design elements which can include line, shape, texture, color, pattern and light. In a recent bathroom project, we used floral mosaics in the shower, on the floor and on an accent wall. We repeated the pattern in several areas over muted color tiles to give the bathroom rhythm. In a fresh kitchen, we used straight lines on cabinet doors, hardware, fixtures and furniture to create rhythm and flow. The idea is to keep the eye moving in a natural way that makes you feel relaxed and comfortable in the room and never overwhelmed.
