I'm not sure it is about size anymore or the amount of daylight that enters the window. I'm talking about my super tiny kitchen with the rear window that lets almost no light in (and a room with no sunlight in super sunny Crete is an awkward room indeed). I can come to terms with its small size and total lack of a decent countertop. After all, there are tons of tricks and organizing solutions one can utilise to their own benefit so that even the smallest of space can actually work out. But with light, there are not so many things one can really do. Of course, there is the artificial light (electricity, hurray!) but that is mostly for functional purposes and does not by any means add the warmth and positive energy our sun has.
Having said that, I totally fell for Holly Mathis' all white transitional kitchen I came across lately. It's not that it is brimming with openings and such but, boy, isn't that kitchen so bright? I love it! It is crisp, classy and a total cutie. Sporting white subway tiles on walls and black and white checkers floor, it just had me at hello. Combining open shelving with closed cabinetry proves that function and style can work together. What I love the most, however, are all those pretty details that Holly incorporated into the space that add that extra personality and eclectic vibe. Check the textures; the bamboo blind, the rattan jugs and the aged pottery. Then, notice the delicate pops of color coming from fresh flowers and edibles alone. Such a great contradiction to the all white canvas of the room. What is not to love really? What do you think? Is it just me or this kitchen is a charmer?
