Sundays, I don my dark navy jeans with a lace camisole and slouchy sweater - a casual yet sophisticated look. Opening a kitchen to living space is also a blend of casual and sophistication. The kitchen has to maintain the same elegant and luxurious style as the living room. This kitchen succeeds beautifully with a shimmering glass backsplash and mica wallcovering on the island.

Blue Pearl granite counter tops. Reflective stainless appliances expands the blue palette, creating a mellow atmosphere in which to prepare and enjoy relaxing meals. Great accent colors are cobalt blue or a deep violet.
For some tropical sizzle, the blue + white chevron hide rug laid over sisal keeps the "sizzle" from getting too hot.
