Bright and Modern Kitchen Inspirations

Bright and modern kitchens are always so
attractive. I especially love the use of colored
glass in a modern kitchen to bring some color
in. Doesn't the green above look so fresh?

If you're going for something that's "hot"
rather than cool, how bout this brilliant
red finish.

Organic and Natural. The pickeled boards
on the wall are a really neat touch.

Nothing like bringing the outdoors in. If I
could be looking at a view while I was doing
dishes, I'd be all for it!

Simple but functional.

I love the contrast of the deep reddish parquet
floors with the white cabinets, marble finishes,
and shiny nickel hardware.

What a way to use marble. The entire island is encased in it.

I really love this blend of modern elements with something
really classy like marble. It really fits well together.

And more glass tiles to bring some color into the open kitchen.
The aquamarine and teal colors are really lovely and popular
as of late. You can't really go wrong with them.

LOVE modern kitchens with the shinny bright colors. If I had a new house that is what I would do in a flash (with classic elements thrown in!)
