It is easy to forget that simplicity is sometimes the thing that wins out in a good design. You can make up a kitchen that has complex architecture and other bells and whistles, or you can go with this cozy and traditional design any small family could love. I think the wood paneling as the theme is perfect for this space. It takes a small kitchen and makes it very cozy and earthy. I tend to favor this color scheme because it works well in big and small spaces, so it is very versatile. The pot and pan rack is also very cool.
