Favorite room of the week!

I am swooning over this fabulous Melbourne kitchen, designed by Australian design firm, Altereco. I find the modern, organic wood elements extremely chic and appealing. The irregular tones and grains in the wood make it even more delightful and visually interesting, don't you think? The juxtaposition of warm woods and cool metallics is a great play on form and contrast. The gorgeous white marble countertop is an added bonus! Such a beautifully designed kitchen, what's not to love? Your thoughts?
