Throughout this home, designers aimed for a look that was farmhouse friendly, but more polished than rustic. The open plan kitchen uses shades of blue to contrast the white and wood elements: navy barstools and a custom gray-blue for the pendants.
This home's kitchen was completely reconfigured to make it more of a space for entertaining. Upgrades included integrating appliances into the design for a cleaner look and opening the room up to the nearby dining and living rooms.
This lovely kitchen skillfully strikes a balance between functional and visually delightful. The designers went with a Scandinavian look that was in keeping with the homeowners' wishes for a simplified, organized space. Wood touches, like the side paneling on the island, warm up the white cabinetry and backsplash.
Minimalist Open Floor Plan Kitchen and Dining Room
The open floor plan of this minimalist home is calm and comfortable. Upholstered gray barstools pull up to the waterfall countertop bar for an extra dining spot, while a mid-century modern dining table pairs with Eames chairs in the dining room. A floating blue buffet adds a touch of color and maintains the airy quality of the space.
This home's original 90s modern look was reworked to be more of a minimalist, contemporary design. Panels of bold blue and white are tempered by the warm wood details. A sculptural brass chandelier lights things from overhead.
Large cooking pots, casserole dishes, and everyday items are stored within easy reach on open shelves near the oven and countertops. The shelves' wood hues are a pretty contrast to the kitchen's many white surfaces.
Tall pantry storage, a kitchen island and an appliance garage are all additions, hiding clutter and upping the kitchen's efficiency. New white oak paneling eases transitions between the older parts of the home and the new.
The design team removed a wall to open up this California kitchen, revealing a ceiling-height window that ushers in loads of natural light. A modern island was added in the renovation and features a waterfall edge and shiplap detail. Four natural wood barstools allow for ample seating and tie in with the white oak cabinetry. Soaring ceilings support rustic-modern pendant lights that add to the room's organic vibe.
