|| KITCHEN 1 | CONTEMPORARY TIMELESS

With a contemporary palette of black and Rift Sawn white oak, marbled quartz and gold detailing combined with more traditional Shaker styling and glazed display cabinets, this stunning kitchen stopped me in my tracks the minute I spotted it on Pinterest! Although not an interior designer, blogger Shauna from 'The House of Silver Lining' knew just what she required from her kitchen in her new home 'The Forest Modern'. With 2 integrated dishwashers, 2 sinks and 2 islands and butler's pantry the following  photo's show the results of this stunning, contemporary yet timeless kitchen.
 Above image: The House of Silver Lining glazed built in display cupboard with glass shelving, in white Rift sawn oak with brass hardware.
Above image: The House of Silver Lining the gilt globe pendant lights add a glamorous touch to the design and the cupboard on the left in white Rift sawn oak with brass hardware houses the fridge and freezer.
Above image: The House of Silver Lining the second island can seat 10 people but yet still includes recessed cupboard storage. Again the use of velvet and gold for the bar/counter stools add glamour to this beautiful space.
