How To Dress Up Cooktop Alcove?

Good Questions

Q: I started my kitchen renovations more than a year ago, and I was thinking that by now, an idea would have come up — but it still hasn't — to dress up a little and unusual corner in my kitchen, an almost hidden but very useful alcove where I cook.

I could do with more storage space, since I don't like having stuff on the countertop and I could do with a punch of color and I am thinking something bold like GOLD, as everything else in the loft is white or grey. At first, I thought that this white range hood would be invisible, but I don't like it and I doubt a gold backsplash would make me forget about it. What would you suggest?
