In the kitchen of my dreams, the tone is set by warm, natural materials that don't have a lot of glitz to them: Lots of honed natural stone, matte tile, timeworn wood. Add to this neutral backdrop gleams of polished nickel here and there (a hint warmer than chrome or stainless steel), and we're really cooking:

1) Circa Lighting's Large Country Industrial Pendant
2) Heath Ceramics Tapestry made-to-order tile in Dandelion Seed colorway
3) Lefroy Brooks Connaught lever kitchen bridge mixer, wall mounted, satin nickel finish
4) SieMatic StoneDesign countertop
5) Viking 48" range
6) Neiman Marcus' "Industrial" Stools
7) Kalley Flooring's Doug Fir End Grain Wood Flooring
