Would you expect a Martha Stewart
kitchen to look this industrial? We don't think this is a new kitchen (in fact, given the slight graininess of the photos and, OK, the overalls, it might be pretty old) but it's the first time we've seen it. See another shot below...
This is a complete departure from the kitchens we've seen in her Turkey Hill and Bedford houses. Those have lots of crisp, white dishes and neutral palettes but are still creamy and slightly country—painted cabinets, wood, etc.
This is almost like a laboratory, with a style very reminiscent of a restaurant kitchen. We weren't really expecting something so hard and cold from Martha, but of course it's still extremely practical, well-organized, and stylish.
The doors on the bottom cabinets slide open to avoid taking up space in the narrow room. And everything has a place. As Martha says, "This isn't a country kitchen. It's basically a service kitchen."
