Licensed contractor Josh Temple and his team transformed the kitchen in this 1905 home, adding a new stove with hood, dishwasher, custom cabinets and a tin tile ceiling. Bright yellow and white stripes, plus a Carrara marble countertop, added to the soda fountain vibe of the space, and meshed well with the couples' love of all things candy-related.
A rainbow mix of colors turns this cottage kitchen into a playful candy land. Green and purple paint makes argyle checks on the wood; a vintage stove comes in a beautiful sky blue. The gingerbread range hood and pendant lights with loopy curlicues are the frosting on the cake.
This open-concept kitchen blends traditional finishes with modern convenience. The granite countertops and brick flooring lend warmth, while the Mediterranean chandelier and oceanside view add tons of eye candy.
In this cheery dining area, a white bookcase atop a prefab kitchen cabinet base mimics the look of custom built-ins on the cheap. Colorful decorative objects and jars full of candy are the cherry on top.
To add some visual eye candy to her brand-new kitchen, HGTV fan cc_insidearch used gold glassed-curved tile to create a basket weave-patterned backsplash in the cut-out of her back wall cabinet unit. With bright backlighting and a reflective granite countertop, the glass tiles' iridescent finish appears especially sleek and shiny.
Il Giallo Osteria and Bar in Sandy Springs is a chef-forward Italian experience located close to all of Atlanta's action but with the unusual appeal of plenty of free parking (yes, it is a big deal in this valet and paid parking-crazy town) in a handsome, open space. Chef and co-owner Jamie Adams features fresh, homemade pasta in his open-kitchen for diners who enjoy a little cooking show entertainment with their meal. Adams' agnolotti with brown butter and sage has been featured on Food Network's The Best Thing I Ever Ate, but there are plenty of other culinary delights on offer including polpette turkey and duck meatballs, a distinctive calamari studded with capers, and a short rib ravioli and a rotating cast of pasta dishes that make this a local favorite. With a talented pastry chef onboard, desserts are just as notable and some of the stars of the show, including the strawberry jam and mascarpone strawberry pizza, bomboloni and a decadent hazelnut bar like a European candy bar with a haute twist.
