White kitchens are the all-time classic. But that doesn't have to mean they are boring! Think of a white kitchen like an investment piece- a Burberry trench coat or a bench-made leather sofa. You can add your personal style in the kitchen with tile, stone, lighting and art.
Above, a stunning kitchen from Melanie Turner Interiors incorporates the arched window in the elegant lines of the barstools, while also catching the curves shapes in the porthole door and pendant lights.
Here, architect Ken Pursley masterfully mixes neutral materials to create warmth and visual interest. Instead of a solid island, he uses a thin sheet of steel to extend a prep station and incorporate a casual place to sit, which ties into the adjacent living area.
And in this kitchen, designer Shazalynn Cavin-Winfrey maxes out prep space with double islands. Fabricating the islands in wood helps to break up the massive space and recalls traditional Gilded Age design. The dramatic hood vent is complimented by the dark colors in the artwork and the brass details of the hood lighting.
