This warm galley kitchen, with lots of natural wood tones, expands from the dining room to the living space. A conversation space is created with four round leather chairs beneath a gorgeous pendant ceiling light and tray ceilings.
A white and gray palette, lots of sunlight and a vaulted ceiling make this open concept kitchen and dining room feel as light as air. The room's visual interest comes from its mix of materials: glass, stainless steel, marble and wood.
For inexpensive wintery decor, Utah interior and textile designer Jennifer Stagg created the fragrant pine canopy by assembling free branches and twine she already owned. She also crafted the candelabra from brass plumbing pieces she found at a hardware store. Thrift stores are also great places to find dishes for cheap, like these she found for a dollar a piece.
Blue and White Kitchen with Kitchen Island, Stools and Kitchen Table with Chairs
This kitchen is a comfortable space that still looks classy and refined. Navy blue and white juxtapose perfectly to create a clean-feeling room perfect for cooking and gathering with friends. The space features both a kitchen island with stools and eat-in dining table surrounded by comfy armchairs.
Contemporary Kitchen Features Built-In Breakfast Bar
To save space in this home, the breakfast bar is a built-in structure with a display shelf. Beside the bar, a steel column is covered in colorful mosaic tile that matches the kitchen backsplash. Recycled teak cabinetry lends warmth to the contemporary room.
Despite the large window, the kitchen was extremely dark with cherry-stained cabinets and red walls before designer Lisa Furey renovated the space. The layout is kept the same, but everything is lightened up.White Shaker cabinets combine with limestone countertops and glass tile backsplash for a clean, transitional look.
"People are having 'stainless steel fatigue' so we are paneling all of the appliances so they disappear and make the space look larger," says Christopher Grubb. Grubb predicts more wood tones and less gray and white for cabinetry over the next year.
The homeowners wanted a unique space for their family, so designers found Moroccan tiles for the backsplash and had custom Oak planks arranged in a chevron pattern on the front of the refrigerator and freezer. For the final touch, un-lacquered brass hardware and pendant lights add even more character to the design.
Caribbean blue in the art, lighting and accessories pops against the soft neutral and white palette of this transitional kitchen and breakfast room. Skylights bring ample natural light into the space, which is already light and bright thanks to the cool color scheme. Shiny metal dining chairs complement the sleek stainless steel appliances and shimmering backsplash tile.
Transitional Eat-in Kitchen With Leather Banquette
The traditional cabinetry and lighting in this space is complemented by an eclectic dining area featuring mismatched chairs and a diamond-tufted leather banquette. Neutral paint and modern stainless steel appliances encourage a feeling of modernity without being minimalistic.
