OK, this might be it – my dream kitchen! This casual, yet elegant East Hampton kitchen was designed by Florida’s self-taught Phoebe Howard. With her husband and fellow decorator Jim, they own an interior design firm, James Michael Howard Interiors and southern retail chain stores, Mrs. Howard and Max & Co. What a dynamic duo!
The neutral color palette and high ceilings give this grand eat-in kitchen a welcoming and peaceful feeling. The kitchen’s glass-fronted cabinets, marble counter tops and white subway tile back splash contrast nicely with all the wood in the space. I also like that all the wooden elements – table & chair, flooring, ceiling and cabinetry – are different hues.
Tucked in between large windows, the kitchen nook’s custom upholstered “sofa” benches are inviting. The pair of square wooden tables can be easily moved around to suit the home owner’s needs. What a fun place to enjoy a cup of morning tea!
If you need more kitchen nook inspiration, take a look at one of my earlier posts.
This gourmet kitchen has all the modern amenities including two sinks – one double sink located on the island and one farm sink under a window. A large professional-grade range and hood take center stage.
The stainless-steel appliances, polished hardware and pendant lighting fixtures provide contemporary elements in an otherwise traditional space.
The large kitchen island offers plenty of counter space for food prep, loads of storage and additional seating.
What a delightful space for entertaining. Love, love, love it.
