When Grace, Brian, and their young daughter moved out of the city and into their own condo, they traded in interesting architectural details for more space. Their kitchen was a simple white box — very similar to most rental kitchens. They have added just a few details to their little kitchen that made it really pop in this photo.
• Paint - We love the fresh powdery blue color that Grace and Brian put on their kitchen walls. It feels fresh and clean, and yet it's still a strong color.
• White platters - Hanging platters on the wall is a rather old-fashioned idea, but here it looks modern and fresh because of the grouping. (Remember Greg's fish platters? We're liking this idea more and more lately!)
• Cookie sheet backsplash - It looks like they hung a simple cookie sheet on the wall behind the sink as a backsplash, and put metal magnets on it. Cute!
