Mixed metals is a home decor trend that isn’t going away anytime soon. In fact, this gorgeous two-tone modern farmhouse is a great example of why using two different metal finishes works so well. Black and gold–a tried and true combo–provide warm, eye-catching accents in the otherwise neutral kitchen.
You’ll find black and gold elements on the light fixtures, cabinet hardware, and even the kitchen island stools. The two-tone look is further emphasized by the contrasting white upper cabinets and wood finish lower cabinets. This farmhouse kitchen has the perfect dose of rustic comfort with all the pros of modern design.
Today’s two-tone kitchen masterpiece is from this fantastic farmhouse-style home built by Millhaven Homes and designed by Four Chairs Furniture & Design, featured in the 2018 Utah Valley Parade of Homes. See more in the home tour here.

2. Enhance the two-tone look with contrasting upper and lower cabinets
Having contrasting upper and lower cabinets is an simple design strategy to keep your kitchen feeling fresh and modern. Here the white upper cabinets and wood finish lower cabinets further enhance the two-tone look.
3. Adorn your kitchen island with simple, functional decor

4. Add modern details with metal counter stools
