With pristine white cabinets, beadboard wainscoting on the front of the island, and a marble backsplash, this space is the epitome of a charming French kitchen. The only thing that strays from this theme is the flooring: oversized ceramic tiles with a concrete look that’s speckled here and there with the look of oxidized metal. This perfectly distressed floor provides an excellent contrast to the polished style of the kitchen, creating a space that looks both forward to modern design trends and backwards to traditional style.
