This kitchen should not work as well as it does. You would think that with the intense color scheme it would be an overly bright space, but they have done some smart tings here t help mellow that out. For example, the light brown flooring helps dull the light a bit, and the long, shotgun style passageway helps to funnel the light as well. It is almost as if they were aware that this space was going to be bright and so figured out a way to spread it out like butter. The kitchen design also seems much larger because of the long stretch of house that it is in.
