My Kitchen is Missing The Wow – Design Questions

White Kitchen Design
The Design Dilemma – This beautiful new kitchen is very well done.  The cabinets are great quality, and a classic profile.  There just seems to be something missing.  The touch that makes it feel like a comforting home, a nice welcoming kitchen, and not just a model home’s kitchen.
Design Answer:
Beige Latte Cabinets
I would love to see the island painted a contrasting color.  A dark grey or brown (depending on the furnishings in your house) such as Benjamin Moore’s Willow would be great.  The back splash needs more of a wow factor, I used a simple marble mosaic here.  For the hood fan you could paint it the same color as the island, or replace it with a stainless steel fan.  Lastly, to add some visual texture and added glitz with an interesting light fixture.  This one is from Restoration Hardware.

I would love to hear opinions on this.  Do you have a room that needs some love? Send me your pictures!
