Every once in a while, our sister site, Apartment Therapy, publishes a House Tour that literally stops us in our tracks. The editors there ran this apartment — affectionately known as The Glitter Suite! — and we just had to stop what we were working on to write about this tour. Why? The kitchen looks more like a bedroom than a kitchen! Plus, we love the dining room, which you can get a little glimpse of in this shot above.
It belongs to Tiffany Pratt — a designer, stylist, and star of HGTV Canada's Buy It! Fix It! Sell It!. As you can see here, she has a deep affinity for color — specifically pink. (The paint color is Dutchess Dawn from Behr.)
In addition to the vibrant use of color, what really got us was all the decorative accents. There's the mirror over the stove, the canvas art, the clock, the table lamp — all things that would usually be in a bedroom.
In this pulled-back shot, you can even see a bedroom-like chandelier and a sweet flowery curtain that a teenage girl would probably lose her mind over. And we love how the geometric black-and-white floor tile balances out the pink. It's just all so surprising for a kitchen!
Another thing that's surprising: All the major supplies for this renovation came from, wait for it, Home Depot. That includes the ultra-glam Delta Champagne Bronze faucet.
Pratt says that people should only keep what they need and love. This advice definitely extends to the kitchen. She keeps counter clutter to a minimum and she's been able to edit her kitchen gear down enough so that everything has a place.
