This large kitchen island provides counter space for prep and cooking as well as an eat-in area. Red place mats and a red fondue pot bring color to the sunny, white surroundings and tie in the red details in the connected living space. Mounted bicycle wheels are a unique decorative statement.
Classic bay leaf fragrance—and flavor—abounds in Sicilian sweet bay (Laurus nobilis ‘LNSS’). Sunny gold leaves and red stems give this shrub beauty in the landscape or stew pot. Harvest leaves as needed for cooking. Plants thrive in full sun to part shade and are hardy in Zones 8-10. To grow Sicilian Sunshine sweet bay in colder regions, keep it in a pot and stash it in a bright, cool spot for winter.
Rich wood cabinets add warmth to the bright, white walls of this kitchen. Bicycle artwork adds a personal touch to the room and complements the red accents in the place mats, fondue pot and desk chair. The large island serves as an eating space as well as prep and cook area. The modern white barstools have long seats with a short backrest lip.
