This is a fun kitchen I design for an older home built in 1906. The client wanted a bistro like setting that was colorful and inviting.
The first thing you see as you head down the hall to the kitchen is this wonderful pantry that runs the entire way. It is filled with shelves and storage areas.
The bistro look begins with the checkerboard floor and fun whimsical accessories. White cabinets compliment the look. The clients needed more heat in the kitchen so this cute space heater was selected and is light enough to be moved easily since the only place to put it was in front of a door to a small side porch.
The 12 foot ceilings make this small kitchen seem much bigger even though it is warm and cozy. It is hard to see in the picture but the window treatments are reversible - black on one side and black and white stripes on the other. This way when you drape them over the rod you can let a potion of the reverse side peek out.
Red seats and pendent lighting give a splash of red that is associated with most bistros
The other side of the hall features framed posters, ticket stubs,
and playbills from some of the Broadway shows the family has attended.
