According to http://www.behr.com/behrx/inspiration/practical_2.jsp

"Simple and functional sums up the look for modern-styled kitchens and dining rooms. Pure, cool colors work well, complementing the clean, simple lines that help define this look.

"Combine natural, polished woods with industrial features, such as metal and glass. Polished nickels and pewters make excellent highlights."

In the last few decades, the kitchen has reemerged as the heart of the home and the hub of household activity in modern decor.

A big kitchen is a perfect spot to showcase your modern decor.

Contemporary - More and more often this style is being used because of its clean and simple lines. Often the cabinets are quite futuristic looking have no carvings or ornate features on them. With this style of kitchen the emphasis is put more on style and practical sophistication rather than beauty and that warm lived in feel.

Contemporary Kitchen Style according to http://www.invitinghome.com/kitchen/kitchen-styles.htm

The association that most people have with the word “contemporary” is something along the lines of clean and simple architectural lines, simplistic interior void of any personal touches and decorative elements. The materials that are identified with the contemporary kitchen style are chrome, glass, and stone. During the movement, man-made materials and sleek forms were introduced and popularized closer to the end of the 1970s.

This site describes typical lighting, colors, materials and even touches on window treatments
