How much, pray tell, do you love this kitchen? It’s from Lonny and personally I adore it. I wish I’d had the guts for marble counters. But I drink far too much red wine in Winter to take that particular design leap. I especially love that the door to this all-white kitchen is black. It adds much-needed weight to the right side of the room and I wouldn’t have thought of it in a million years. I may need to paint one of my own doors a sudden, accidental, and yet absolutely sensible kind of color like black or navy.
I love the floating shelving. I know that those of you who inherited the practicality gene (which skipped me) are thinking, “But where do they store their ugly things?” Let’s just pretend that there’s a giant pantry to the left of the fridge, shall we? (The Lonny stylist had to have stashed a few ugly things somewhere.) Open shelving is a cheap & practical kitchen design solution. I didn’t even realize that it was practical until after I’d done it. I just thought it was lovely. And we couldn’t afford any more cabinets.
What would I change in this fabulous kitchen? Well, thanks for asking. I would have put a custom panel on the dishwasher to match the cabinets. To me, the stainless dishwasher is a distraction. Subzero fridges are sexy. That range is totally sexy. Dishwashers aren’t sexy. It’s like going to a lovely beach and seeing an unattractive man in a thong; cover it up, please. Thank you.
Now, what would you keep or change in this delightfully light filled kitchen?
