Blue Shibori Chairs Add Boho Touch to Dining Table
For an unexpected bohemian touch, designer Brooke Wagner added two shibori chairs to the dining table. Thanks to their neutral print, they pair well with the other chairs while adding a little visual interest.
Eat-In Island, Dining Table Allow for Easy Entertaining
This open kitchen truly has everything the owners need for entertaining: stainless appliances, a large eat-in island and a dining set that comfortably seats eight guests. All that's missing now is the bottle of wine!
The kitchen takes a colorful, industrial turn, showcasing Naomi’s fondness for metallics. The island is topped with an oxidized, steel countertop. The material is a unique twist on the usual granite or marble found in most kitchens. The steel top will patina over time. Its rough-hewn texture is also a pleasing contrast to the stainless steel refrigerator and brass elements in the kitchen. Cabinets in a gray-blue tone contrast with the brass pendant overhead. Naomi discovered the pair of vintage white bar stools and painted the legs gold for a finishing metallic touch.
The vintage feel of this kitchen was preserved thanks in large part to the '50s style refrigerator, while Mediterranean tile lines the walls. Mercury-glass mirrors were added to the cabinet doors in order to brighten the tiny space.
Rustic Wood Ceiling, Yellow Oven Hood Star in Farmhouse-Inspired Kitchen
A soaring ceiling is highlighted by rustic wood paneling, drawing the eye up in this kitchen and dining space located in a farmhouse-inspired home. White walls allow the bold, yellow oven hood and elegant crystal chandeliers to shine.
To encourage flow from one room to the next, designer Joe Human layered this modern kitchen and hallway with polka dot wallpaper and custom pieces. Three copper barstools, geometric lights and a marble island add a luxe touch to the design.
Vibrant Kitchen with Yellow and Gray Tile and Wood and Stainless Steel Island
Create an island with multiple levels and materials. This budget-friendly kitchen island mixes materials on its staggered surfaces in this 2016 National Kitchen + Bath Association Competition winner. Quartz, wood and stainless steel combine to make a stylish and functional island for the space.
Michelle’s Interiors wanted to make sure to incorporate bold colors and details into this relatively neutral-colored kitchen. By using beautiful, bright-colored textures, furnishings and accessories this kitchen was turned into a room that boasts light and positivity.
This pink and black kitchen is not for the timid. Hot pink cabinets, pink and black graphic wallpaper, and retro pendant lamps work with a curved black countertop on the island and the black and white barstools.
Lucie Ayres' client asked to have a pantry, laundry room AND a desk in a small nook of the kitchen. She made it happen mainly by opening the walls between the former laundry room and kitchen and by installing space-saving retractable doors.
Rustic Wood & Stainless Steel in Stunning Eclectic Kitchen
Beautiful rustic wood cabinets complement the wood-topped island in this open, eclectic kitchen. A mix of recessed lighting and pendant lights highlights the stainless steel countertops and triple stainless steel sinks.
This colorful craftsman kitchen features an island repurposed from a dresser in a bright red. Behind the island, which also functions as a breakfast bar, is a small banquette; a great solution for a small eat-in kitchen.
Two kitchen islands means double the storage and double the countertop space. Matching orange metal drum shade pendants over both islands balances the long kitchen. A paneled refrigerator blends in seamlessly with the cabinets.
Unique Kitchen Island Made From Department Store Display Cabinet
To give a London kitchen a striking focal point (not to mention acres of built-in storage), designer Egon Walesch had a haberdashery display cabinet from a department store cut down to size to create a unique kitchen island. “Toughened (or tempered) glass provides an excellent work surface, and the drawers, previously used for storing gloves, scarves and hats, provide excellent space to accommodate and display treasured crockery and table linens,” says Walesch.
