Design Blog : Kitchen Spaces

If you live in a small space you know how important design is. What is necessary? How do you organize it? Not to mention storage. I live in an 800 sqft. modern cottage and I love to look at great design to gather inspiration.  Here is my italian full-body porcelain tiled kitchen counters, custom alder cabinetry and Besa pendant lights.

I love the natural clean lines of the Clearlake iT house, the balanced lighting makes Terry Ohm's prefab kitchen seem much larger than it really is.

Lighting is vital especially in small spaces. To display or to obscure, is the question many collectors and cooks face. The dark floor and clean lines in this open plan kitchen's minimizes visual clutter, while the use of bright sunny colors and natural wood allows the collections of functional objects to be fully appreciated.

The dining cooking and living space in this San Francisco residence is only 500 sqft. Natural finishes with strong features, like the reclaimed knotted cypress cabinetry with the classic black veined carerra marble counters and walls reflect in the sliding glass wall and gives the effect of extending the room outdoors.
