Like yellow, white can be a problematic color in a kitchen design. But in this one it works well. What they have done is balance out the white with the brown hardwoods, and they have succeeded in taking what could be an overly bright space and actually made it very clean and very cozy. I love the cupboards, and the way they use the large glass panes to reveal what is inside. It also gives the space a very 1920’s sort of feeling. I almost expect to see a steaming pie on the window sill. The silver appliances are also a nice touch.
