We Spy With Our Designer Eye

Each Sunday we’ll share a design that caught our eye and we took some time to savor.  Designs that are a little different from the norm, like this one shared by Arent & Pyke.  At first glance we see the explosion of these tomato red counter stools!  With a closer look, let’s delve in and see all the design details that make this kitchen so inviting.

Ooooh…Here’s What I Love About This Interior Design!

  • traditional white, full overlay cabinets with added true divided glass pane doors
  • complimenting dark counter tops, would be great if soapstone yet probably a honed granite with the matte finish
  • half vaulted, shiplap covered ceiling is home to recessed can lights that almost disappear
  • dark finish, clear bulb pendant lighting complete the ceiling detail
  • wood mimic tile flooring offers such easy maintenance
  • abstract art pair start the impression that this kitchen is full of color
  • one, two, three different pattern and color area rugs work together so well
  • oh my…those patio doors in the same tomato finish as the previously mentioned counter height stools with the “pick me up” handle design
  • sitting on the counter is an open shelf for cookbooks leaving us knowing this kitchen is always filled with alluring aroma
  • board and batten wall design defines the pathway to the alfresco dining area
  • more dark finishes with the simple round cabinet hardware and kitchen sink faucet on a smooth flat front, apron sink (no we don’t have to call them farm sinks!)
  • is that wood arm chair part of a built-in breakfast nook, or perhaps a Mom’s day desk?
  • wonder who is the collector of the multi-color glass bottles gracing the sink window sill?
  • plenty of room for messages and mood inspiring tidbits on the magnetic board above the peninsula extension of the counter space
  • the plants!
  • what’s in that small floral ceramic bowl…lose change, a piece of chalk, a chef’s errant pony tail holder?
  • the dark, aged varnish gnarly leg table is just perfect in the sea of white walls and colorful accessories
  • looks like a small size, herringbone, white tile wall splash and more moldings as wainscoting in front of stair spindles (behind the vintage plant table)
  • the busy Mom, who snuck out for her early Saturday am market trip, has the fruit all ready for the week in a turned wood pedestal bowl
  • she’s sitting outside, on her lovely extension of her kitchen, drinking the last of her coffee before her family finds her asking what will they do today!

    1. Reds, any way we use them, work in decor and fashion. Katherine Hepburn always needed just a pop!

    1. They do…but it’s only the beginning to such an inviting, and may I day, galley kitchen!
