6. Architectural Symmetry
Contemporary and modern style kitchens are often designed with angles, curves, and also unique configurations. While there are a variety of traditional kitchen design details, symmetry is commonplace. In this kitchen, windows flank the range, imparting a pleasing balance as well as formality.

Magnificent Millwork & Mudroom
Plenty of traditional design elements fall in and out of vogue. Herringbone pattern flooring, for example, is having a moment across design styles. It’s a configuration which may be traced back to ancient Egyptian jewelry as well as Roman Empire roadways.
In this mudroom space, herringbone tile flooring stands up to abuse, defines the space, and repeats the cheerful blue accent introduced throughout the home.
Whimsical Wall Covering & Painted Beadboard
Why not bring a smile to every guest who enters a jewel box of a powder bath? A console sink and beaded board trim recall the past yet feel glamorous and fresh.
