Admittedly, I have a pretty limited knowledge about creating zen spaces or the fine art of feng shui. What I’ve noticed over the years, however, is that some very impactful spaces incorporate seemingly opposing elements of nature with reckless abandon…and with great success. Take fire and ice, for example. Hot and cold, warm and cool. However you think of the terms, the fact remains that these opposites do, indeed, attract. Let’s examine a few spaces where fire and ice come together to create a beautiful, serene, and balanced space.
This updated kitchen is chic and sleek…with just enough texture and natural elements thrown in to keep things grounded. The space uses rich, warm cherry cabinetry to infuse the area with warmth. Cool granite countertops (along with stainless steel appliances and glass-front cabinets) balance the warm wood and bring an aesthetic balance to an already functional space.
