A little color goes a long way with a neutral color palette. Stainless steel can make a kitchen feel cleaner, and also picks up a lot of reflected light. Light, warm woods keep the lower cabinets bright in contrast with a dark countertop, while the subtle placement of wine bottles with multi-colored seals contribute to the play of warm light on cool steel. This also provides an opportunity to personalize a design detail or add a seasonal feel; green and red seals here would be perfect for the holidays.
