This design is close to my heart because for the past few years some friends of mine and I have been renting a great beach house with an awesome kitchen. I can attest to the fact that there is nothing cooler than looking put over a sunny beach while you cook dinner. The awesome view aside, this kitchen design uses white and black in a great way, serving to accentuate the natural lighting form outside. The hard wood floors help to absorb some of that light so that the space does not become glaring. This kitchen design makes me want to head to the coast.
