To celebrate Small Cool, here's a look at a kitchen from the most recent Apartment Therapy house tour: a big old brownstone with a teeny IKEA kitchen. • 1 The kitchen is basically the entryway to the home, a small space for a kitchen in an otherwise huge and beautiful apartment.
• 2 The landlord recently updated the kitchen with basic IKEA cabinets.
• 3 Nicole kept the kitchen very simple and minimalist, in keeping with the rest of their home.
• 4 But we do love the fresh flowers and this simple hanging board with hooks for essential kitchen tools.
• 5 And there will be plenty of plant life: Nicole is starting 24 lavender plants!
