A completely curved kitchen created a challenge for designer Mary Anne Smiley but she was able to turn it into an interesting and inviting space. With limited room to work with, the kitchen island doubles and a breakfast nook on the other side for an efficient use of space.
Beautiful Contemporary Kitchen With White Quartzite Countertops
In order to accommodate homeowners who love to host guests, this kitchen was thoughtfully designed to be functional, yet contemporary and sleek. The large kitchen island can act as an informal dining area as well as the perfect area to serve food. The white quartzite used for the countertops functions similarly to granite in that it is sturdy and handles a wide range of temperatures--necessary for a client who spends a lot of time in the kitchen.

The key feature of this Santa Monica kitchen is a stunning marble monolithic island that acts as a modern sculptural piece. Marble continues in the countertops and backsplash over contemporary cabinets, while open shelves provide easy access to dishes.
This open, contemporary environment is bright yet warm and inviting. Two islands were created to provide flow and access across the kitchen, connecting the various work areas and provide a nice transition to the adjacent dining area.
Taking full advantage of the open floor plan, a semi-circular island anchors this eat-in kitchen with a tiered breakfast bar. The textured finish on the bar is a visual treat, alongside the mosaic tile backsplash above the pale wood cabinetry.
In this kitchen, the large island resembles a table more than its stout, storage-heavy counterparts. Its open design, with a slab wood top and smooth legs, keeps the space feeling light and open while still providing valuable storage below. A trio of pendants work the space overhead, while recessed lights span the length of countertop.
