Saarinen in Milan

I was searching for more apartment inspiration when I stumbled across this amazing kitchen designed by Dimore Studio in Milan. Obviously I initially obsessed over the white marble Saarinen Tulip Table however what caught my eye was the beautiful time-warn brass island.  I mean, look at it, isn't it just beautiful?  The patina of the oxidized brass plays off the muted grey walls and the green and mustard accents creating the perfect color palette.  And doesn't it look gorgeous against the worn out rust-colored cupboard?  All the elements - the fabrics, styles, furniture and colors - are layered creating a room that is truly original.  This is the feel I hope to create in my new apartment - a space where everything was chosen for a reason and has meaning...I'm a sucker for anything that shows age.
