Eye Spy a Trend: Mixed Material Cabinetry


For those of us who feel that reclaimed wood isn't quite sleek enough,
 and laquered cabinetry is too sleek-
 these beauties have the best of both worlds..

I spotted this on the lovely Ashlina's blog, The Decorista



There's much to see here, but focus in on those lower cabinets..
that's not a door treatment you see every day.
From French Elle Decor - c'est parfait, non?


Another example, for those of who are us white kitchen lovers..




Here's the flipside, wood frames and laquered doors - I LOVE this one:




A whole kitchen is quite a commitment.
Perhaps a piece of furniture to update a room?

There's loads of mixed bag options floating about:

Gorgeous wood and leather cabinet.. 


Walnut Leather Cabinet

The sexy Seguro media console from Crate and Barrel..





The Pratt Desk from West Elm..

I like the contrast of rustic and refined,
smooth and rough,
light and dark.

It makes a space more interesting, yes?

I love the reclaimed timber. We found a bed on the weekend from Domayne. It's called the [eco-friendly] 'Pod'.
