HGTV Design Star contestant Karl Sponholtz designed this kitchen addition, including the custom cabinetry and paneling. "I wanted to give the traditional Georgian architecture a modern aesthetic — dreamy!," he says.

The over sized, but elegant, chandelier accentuates a tray ceiling while recessed lights help to fill every inch of this space with light. A large, black table set against wall-to-wall windows not only provides the perfect meeting place to enjoy breakfast but also a bold contrast for the space.
