This whimsical tea kettle playhouse is the perfect space for kids to escape and have a magical tea party. An outdoor bistro table with chairs complete with tea set sparks creativity and imagination. Flower shaped lights and landscaping insets coordinate well with the natural landscape and flowers in this backyard setting.
The redesign of this lovely residence, home to a family of five, began as a kitchen remodel then turned into a full house renovation. The owners loved bright colors and splashy patterns, so they're seen throughout from cheery accents in the kitchen to the sunny wallpaper in the foyer.
White shaker style kitchen cabinets with brushed nickel drawer pulls give this kitchen an elegant, contemporary look. Glass paneled cabinets break up the solid white cabinets and allow vintage tea kettles to show.
A wall of marble subway tile forms into a framed blue and brown mosaic tile backsplash that adds visual interest to this transitional kitchen. A blue tea kettle and red knobbed stove pop against the white cabinetry and black granite countertops.
The crisp white-and-gray decor of this galley kitchen allows lots of room for bright pops of color in the accessories, like the yellow tea kettle and turquoise dish towel. The gray tile backsplash is both efficient and sophisticated.
Pops of red energize the cool grays and blacks in the kitchen, most imaginatively in the faucet for the sink. A cylindrical stainless steel range hood is a striking design statement that also draws the eye upward to visually add height to the room.
To open up the kitchen to the rest of the living area meant losing a wall of cabinets. But the designers added lots of hidden storage to make up for it: A microwave is tucked inside the peninsula; a glass storage cabinet is built in on one wall; and there is a huge pull-out pantry next to the refrigerator.
Everything about this spacious kitchen epitomizes elegance, from the hand-cast cabinet hardware to the custom tile backsplash to the pendant light over the butcher-block-topped island. The soft yellow wall color allows bright white cabinetry to stand out in the space.
With a color palette that recollects the Caribbean, this modern kitchen is both cheerful and calming. A pale blue backsplash is brought alive via blue bottles and vases and moved into the center of the room courtesy of two large bowls.
This kitchen was designed to be open to the nearby great room and dining space because of its lack of natural sunlight. The openness of the kitchen helps balance the kitchen's dark industrial color palette.
