As seen on season 1 of Sarah Sees Potential, this once cramped and dated kitchen and dining area was transformed into a chic, mid-century style space. Designer Sarah Richardson upcycled thrift store chairs by dipping the legs in chrome and reupholstering the seats. Keeping with the vintage theme, Sarah installed mid-century modern light fixtures and added bright pops of color throughout the neutral space. The owner's original artwork hangs above a custom banquette to complete the look.
This eat-in kitchen not only has stools but also a full-sized counter-height dining table to provide plenty of seating. The island incorporates a gas cooktop lit by three chrome pendant light fixtures.
Beautiful transitional kitchen that is soft with the grey and white color palette. soft touches of color and pattern i the barstools soften the room. the clean lines and chrome finish on the light fixtures adds a traditional bling to the space.
This tranquil blue kitchen features multiple hidden elements that increase functionality. The large blue island boasts solid white quartz countertops, complementing the white cabinetry throughout the kitchen. The island also conceals a dishwasher and wastebasket. Large chrome pendant lights provide bright light, which can be controlled by two built-in smart tablets just around the corner of the kitchen.
Dark wood cabinets pop against the putty-colored paneled walls in the kitchen in this welcoming country cabin. Thick slab countertops and large chrome pendant lights help balance the visual weight of the oversized timber doorway leading to the adjacent two-story living room.
Blue, green and gray swirls in this granite kitchen island give the appearance of flowing water. Backless, color-blocked bar stools are pulled up to the island to make a cozy dining space. Modern accents like the reflective hood, metallic pendant lights and chrome cabinet hardware add more bling to this sleek space.
In a new home, designer Jodie Cooper took the concept of dramatic lighting to new heights, using a custom-made “bulkhead” suspended from the ceiling by chrome rods to light the kitchen and dining area. “The bulkhead also helps to visually define the kitchen area without losing the loft style feel,” she says. And, she notes, “having a modern kitchen does not need to translate to having modern décor. By blending pieces, such as retro dining chairs, Chinese antiques, rustic dining table combined with Turkish patchwork rugs, we created texture and layers, which add a kind of Bohemian style to the home to create what I call a “Global Eclectic” interior.”
A beautiful aspect of this great room is the bright white kitchen. Some of the details include three chrome hanging lights above the spacious island which is covered in white and gray marble. The island counter extends to provide extra seating for guests to enjoy the company of the home chef.
Thanks to an open floor plan, the funky dining room is the epicenter of this contemporary downtown loft. A purple accent wall outlines the dining room and kitchen, while a mix of lighting helps to define each space. The blown glass pendants above the dining table add sculptural elegance.
This stylish kitchen breakfast nook features two teal dining chairs positioned around a round white table. An industrial chrome pendant light hangs overhead, while gray and white diamond-patterned wallpaper provides a fun backdrop.
Cable railing doesn't inhibit views from the kitchen to the living room like wood or wrought iron railing would. Modern chrome light fixtures balance rustic elements like cowhide bar chairs and butcher block counters.
