We've never gravitated towards the stainless steel kitchen craze; our preferences lean towards cozy, warm, wooded kitchens. This kitchen, which we stumbled across in the June edition of House Beautiful, stole our hearts because....

It brilliantly uses stainless steel drawers to lend an industrial accent to what might be a blander kitchen without the drawers. In the case of this kitchen, designed by interior designer Jay Griffith, the metal drawers relate particularly well to the black metal window casings and the Douglas Fir wood used for the walls and cabinets.

Have you used metal accents, other than appliances, to modernize your kitchen without making it feel chilly?
