Ashli Mizell encore

Posted on Wed, 8 Feb 2012 by midcenturyjo

New work from  Philadelphia based interior designer Ashli Mizell. I love the rustic look of the tiles against the marble and cabinets. It’s rough vs smooth, modern trad with a twist of ethnic. A clash of tiles reminiscent of the pattern riots of the riad plays with the calm of the white while smoky hues play with earthy oranges. A hint of Morocco. It’s the layering that comes through in Ashli’s designs. Pattern on pattern, texture on texture. Rustic on the modern. (Original post on Ashli Mizell here.)

I am with you all the way on this – the combination between rustic and modern, smooth and textured, coloured and neutral is perfection.
This kitchen is stunning but it also really feels like it is a kitchen that people can use and feels like it is a warm home kitchen.
Great post Jo, thanks!

Dont love the kitchen but I am OBSESSED with the tile. Incredible!

Love this backsplash! My favorite!

I love this post! To me the combination of pattern and rustic elements, Moroccan accents and clean white backdrop is so modern. Gorgeous!

I am not to impressed with using two 9" cabinets to the right of the range instead of a single 18" cabinet . It looks unbalanced and not a very good use of space.

Re: those 9" cabinets…the one on the far right is for baking sheets, large cutting boards, etc. The two 9" cabinets directly on the right and left of the range are pull out shelves containing spices, oils, cooking sauces, vinegars.
