This inspiration pinboard combines farm and industrial accents with modern colors and patterns to create a timeless yet fresh look.

Lower Cabinetry: Shaker door style in Sea Salt Blue

"I love this color. It's bold, current, and yet universal enough to look fresh for many years. The cheerful shade of blue provides a number of options for color combinations. I'm keeping the room simple by pairing Sea Salt Blue with neutrals including off-white, grey, and wood tones."

Custom Cupboards

Upper Cabinetry: Shaker door style in Chambray

"By using an off-white for the upper cabinets, we will create the illusion of a more spacious kitchen. The white doors will carry light around the room, and the neutral tone balances the bolder colors used elsewhere."

Countertops: Silestone Nebula Series "Altair"

"This quartz countertop has a subtle depth of color that will be teased out when placed in a room with strong colors. Look closely and you'll spot cool tones - blues, greens - and warm tones - browns and yellows - within the larger gray surface. The contrast of a mid-gray countertop against the light, painted cabinetry and wallpaper will create visual interest, but won't cause a jarring division between the upper and lower cabinetry."

Silestone

Pulls and Knobs:

"I chose hardware with a antique vibe to keep the kitchen from drifting too modern. The classic Aubrey pull gives heft to the lower cabinets, particularly in an oil-rubbed bronze finish. The Zinnia knob, in aqua ceramic with aged brass details, lends a 'vintage find' overtone to the otherwise buttoned-down off-white upper cabinetry."

Oil-Rubbed Bronze Aubrey Pull for lower cabinets - $11 from Restoration Hardware

Aqua Zinnia Knob for upper cabinets - $8 from Anthropologie

Lighting: Factory Pendant Light Fixture

"A pair or trio of these reproductions of vintage industrial fixtures over the island will provide ample light for the work surface and enhance the kitchen with substantial, no-nonsense detailing. Be sure to install these on a dimmer to create a cozier look after dark."

Galvanized, $219 from Schoolhouse Electric & Supply Co.

Open Storage: Circa 1900 Baker's Rack

"Highlight your treasured ceramics and cooking implements atop this shelving unit inspired by a commercial piece from a turn-of-the-century bakery. The oxidized metal finish and oak shelves will contrast nicely against the painted cabinetry."

$995 from Restoration Hardware

Seating: Tractor Counter Stool

"Danish modern meets classic Americana with this whimsical yet practical counter stool. I love the warmth of the walnut, a contrast to real, steel tractor seats."

$1,195 from Design Within Reach

Wallpaper: Amy Butler Sun and Moon

"This modern, monochromatic wallpaper adds interest with its subtle geometric pattern. Wallpaper may not appeal to you, but it's in the midst of a comeback, often being used on a single wall or in subdued tones."

Moss/white color way, $70/roll from Graham & Brown

Area Rug: Beckham Stripe Rug

"Kitchens are - out of necessity - typically the domain of hard surfaces. But even the occasional cook will appreciate a cushion beneath their feet. This clever rug introduces pleasing, neutral stripes to the kitchen and is made from polypropylene, which means it thrives in high-traffic areas, shrugs off messes, and can be scrubbed and bleached as needed."

Platinum, $298 from Dash & Albert

Dinnerware: Hayes Dinnerware Set

"With artisanal detailing, this stoneware set strikes the perfect balance between hand-made looks and a very modern shade of grey."

$29.95 from Crate & Barrel

Stand Mixer: KitchenAid Artisan Stand Mixer

"Okay, I know. Matching the color of your mixer to the color of your kitchen may seem a little silly. But I really love the 1950s style of the classic KitchenAid in Ice Blue. Too much color for your tastes? The chrome and white finishes are can't-lose choices."

Ice Blue, $349.95 from Williams-Sonoma
