Light from the side. Light from above. Light everywhere! With its high ceilings and windowed wall leading out to a courtyard, this loft kitchen in St. Louis, Missouri is an open, airy dream.

The owner, Phil Durham, is an architect. (His architectural firm, Studio Durham, is actually right downstairs!) The details include a Viking range, custom-fit cabinets, and stainless steels counter and backsplash.

I love how the kitchen opens right into the courtyard! It really serves as both an indoor and outdoor kitchen. I bet entertaining is awesome in this space.
