We love how this kitchen has clean, crisp modern touches right alongside some really traditional elements—the toile-like wallpaper and the wooden cabinet (maybe it's antique?) tucked into the far right corner. It belongs to a woman who's known for her fancy, iced-to-perfection cookies in every shape, size, and character. Know who it is?
It's Eleni Gianopulos, the owner of Eleni's New York cookies, which are sold at the store in Chelsea Market and shipped all over the country.
Because she's an avid baker, Eleni wanted an electric oven (she says it cooks much more evenly than gas) and a marble countertop for rolling out dough. Her husband wanted a different oven and lots of stainless steel.
We love how the modern stainless steel and lucite chairs work so well with the country-esque vibe of the rest of the room. And that wallpaper is just stunning. It's expensive, of course, but if you have a really small kitchen, maybe you could splurge on one thing to add a huge burst of color and pattern.

Would you put that bold of a wallpaper in your kitchen? What do you think?
