Glossy and Gilded Finishes Will Make a Minimalistic Kitchen Look Ultra-Luxe

Is anyone else totally swooning over this modern kitchen designed by Lindye Galloway? Of course you are, and we are too! This is a look that absolutely nails minimalism by sticking to a glossy neutral palette punctuated by gold and wood accents. The eye can't help but immediately notice the contemporary statement light overhead, which features simple lines and gilded accents that beautifully coincide with the structured natural barstools below. Then, the reflective sheen of the hardware-free cabinets steel away some of that thunder with their smooth form, as the marble backsplash works in some texture. The best part about this space is its finishes: the cabinets blend into the island's base and the matte flooring, as the wood frames of the stools give warmth to the surrounding marble and gold. Since this kitchen is highly sophisticated — but also very simplistic — every detail counts. Make sure you're just as attentive when you follow this lead.
