‘Julie and Julia’
“What is most memorable about this space, in addition to the color, is the creative use of storage,” says Dayna Hairston, owner and interior designer at Dayziner in New York. For instance, as you'll see above Julia's stove, “a wall-mounted peg board is a great way to add storage opportunities to vertical space.”
“Look closely, there are no upper cabinets!” Hairston says. “While many of us shudder at the idea of losing our precious storage space and leaving all of our plates and bowls exposed for all to see, this kitchen soothes our fears. Removing the upper cabinetry instantly opens the space up and makes the room feel bigger. To make up for the loss of storage space, invest in beautiful wall-to-wall shelving and utilize all of the vertical space.”
‘Something’s Gotta Give’
“The white cabinets with contrasting hardware parallels with today’s ever-popular farmhouse style," Hairston notes. "To capture this look, combine rustic, weathered, or distressed pieces with rigid metal accessories. Keep the color scheme natural, with whites, creams, and beiges contrasted against deep hues such as black or bronze. To help modernize the space, add galvanized metal decor accessories and greenery, such as succulents and eucalyptus.”
