I spend a lot of time scouring the internet for smart, stylish small kitchens, always keeping an eye out for clever storage ideas or decorating details. This London kitchen is a little small-space charmer, and here are three reasons why:
It's not surprising that Bobby Flay's Hamptons kitchen has a commercial 10-burner stove, two Viking ovens, a fryer, griddle, salamander, and seating that includes a farm table and two café tables. (He is a professional chef and TV star, after all.) But what is surprising is the color choice — a beautiful turquoise blue that is such a lovely change of pace from the all-white kitchens we're used to seeing.
Noah Marion's Austin home is a lesson in how to do dark wood well in the kitchen. The rich, bold espresso cabinets, softened by the surrounding lighter wood tones, vintage accessories, and a little bit of greenery, make the kitchen feel very warm and welcoming.
I really dig this kitchen color combo. The island is simply the perfect blue-gray, and it really pops against the crimson stools and tangerine seat cushions. This cheery but sophisticated color palette works because it's offset with a lot of white. Did you notice the subtle light gray backsplash, too?
One of my favorite kitchens as of late has to be Amy and Rob's Rhode Island kitchen built in a — wait for it — converted greenhouse! With its original A-frame roofline and floor-to-ceiling windows, this kitchen is truly lovely and one-of-a-kind.
"Don't be afraid to bring large furniture pieces into a small space" says Kelsey in this recent Apartment Therapy House Tour. That advice is on full display in Kelsey's San Francisco home, which she shares with her husband Mike and their daughter, Louella. The vintage Mid-Century cabinet in the kitchen takes up one whole wall, but it serves as the lovely and well-organized focal point of the space.
Joey and Gerard's Mount Washington hillside home is a wonderful mix of vintage elements and colors with a little French countryside charm. The couple completely renovated the kitchen, top to bottom, but the redo is very much in keeping with the vintage styling of the rest of their home.
