One thing I noticed right away is how this isn’t a large kitchen. This kitchen is a great example of what can be done to maximize a smaller space. Her use of paint colors and finishes make this kitchen feel fresh, bright and open.

This kitchen was not only cleverly designed but budget friendly as well. The cabinet bases are from IKEA. Then she used custom fit doors and drawer fronts from Semihandmade that she spray painted with Farrow and Ball, “Pigeon”.

The brass accents in this kitchen are stunning and add beautiful color and dimension. I love how she mixed metal in this space, choosing stainless steel appliances and brass hardware. They pair beautifully with the Calacutta Marble counters.

The two globe pendant lights (similar here) make a beautiful transition from the kitchen to living area. It was so clever to remove the original kitchen wall. This has a huge impact on the flow and feel of this space. It now looks like a great place to entertain and welcome guests.

    This is beautiful, thanks for sharing. I love the colour of those units.

    Just discovered your blog from Instagram and I love it. Although you might want to check it out on a mobile phone, your adchoices banner really messes up the viewing experience, it takes up the whole screen and you can’t get rid of it!
