American Southwest

Southwest-Style Kitchen with Terra Cotta-colored floors

"This client had traveled extensively in the Southwest and brought back artifacts-chairs, throws, china-and wanted the kitchen to be in keeping with the Southwest theme. In order to be Southwest, the kitchen really needed to be in the mode of terra cotta earth tones, colors that come from the ground. It's a mellow look, with red, oranges and woods that lend themselves to the Southwest mode.

 

"The use of weathered and worn frosted knotty pine cabinets fits right in with this. Rough-hewn log beams in the ceiling also emphasize the earthy feel. The terra cotta floor tile was carried out on the countertop as well and lends authenticity to the project, as does the apron sink. The décor really ties the room together, with the chairs, cactus plant and open shelving to show off a Southwest pottery collection.
