Kristen and Michelle's lovely Austin home just went up on Apartment Therapy this afternoon, and you don't want to miss it. Their kitchen has soft honey-colored walls, gorgeous bright blue cabinets, and a vintage 1950s O'Keefe & Merritt stove.
Lori LaMont believes that small accessories are just as important as large pieces of furniture — or so she tells Apartment Therapy in their recent tour of her Long Beach, California home. You can definitely see that philosophy on display in her kitchen, particularly when you spot the one surprising thing she has hanging on the wall...
Annie and Tom's historic home in Baltimore's Roland Park neighborhood sat vacant for many years before it went on the market. When it did, the couple saw the potential in this broken down old house and snapped it up — and thus began months of renovation and restoration work, including a complete gutting of the kitchen!
"This house has wonderful energy…it’s got a fantastic spirit," says Vanessa in this recent Apartment Therapy House Tour. That spirit extends into her kitchen, with its bright blue walls, tangerine cabinets, and personal touches, like the refrigerator full of photos and her collection of vintage glassware. This is a lovely, lived-in kitchen! It may have precious things in it, but it doesn't feel precious.
Shelby has a strong decorating sense, and her Chicago apartment is a blend of budget DIY solutions and "practical but beautiful" things. I love what she's done with her kitchen, particularly in the empty space above her (otherwise ordinary) range hood: she put a plant there, and wrapped an old tapestry around the planter. Next to the ikat bowls, it fills that wall space wonderfully!
Joseph Findeiss' "Owl House" in Denver, Colorado is a visually-expressive mix of style and genres. Described as "a little bit Green Acres, a dash of Moonrise Kingdom" with some estate sale chic thrown in, it's a place perfectly suited to the artist who lives there. This eclecticism is on display in Joe's kitchen and dining room:
Tracey and Rob's lakeside Toronto kitchen is a welcoming mix of industrial and natural elements, with metal pendant lights and Emco navy chairs living side-by-side with the rich woods of the dining table and floor. It's cool and unfussy, with a little retro schoolhouse vibe.
Did you follow along with Andi's kitchen renovation over on Apartment Therapy? She chronicled the gut renovation of her San Francisco kitchen for the site, and in May posted the big reveal. It's a stunning remodel: cool, crisp, classic enough to fit in Andi's 1890 Victorian condo, but with a few modern touches. See more photos below:
I'll go on record saying that I don't think there's a single thing I don't like in Briana and Dominic's Austin kitchen. The mix of closed and open shelving, the colors, the impeccably organized and labeled jars lining the shelves — there is so much style here, but clearly this is a kitchen that's used. And what's more... it's a rental!
"Casey and I have always loved the ocean and nature. And I love vintage items and all the stories that go along with them," says Andrea Figlewicz in this recent Apartment Therapy House Tour. "We love making our home fun and cozy." We can tell! Despite only living in their new home for two months, it's already full of color, personality, and vintage one-of-a-kinds, especially in the kitchen!
