Just because you have a big, spacious kitchen design with some detailed architecture, does not meant at the space cannot be accessible and highly functional. That is the way this kitchen works. I love the classic architecture, and I love the powerful use of white. They were smart to have brown trim on the chairs, and to also use darker wood paneling on the island. This helps mellow the white coloring a little bit. I can tell where everything goes in this kitchen, and it seems like it would be very easy to just walk in and start cooking dinner.
