The kitchen in the photo above is pretty much my dream kitchen: black and white color scheme, wood, a section of open shelving—just throw in a copper or matte black swan tap and I’m sold. But you know what really gets me about the space above? The mix of cabinet types.

Perhaps I’m just being greedy, but I love seeing more than one cabinet style in a kitchen. It’s irreverent and cool and oozes personality. At this point, we’re all used to two-tone kitchens, but combining two cabinet types takes the trend further. Are you ready?

How do you feel about mixing cabinet types in a kitchen? Is it creative or just one style too far?
