I’m loving this kitchen featured on  Looks like she’s having way too much fun, huh?  Of course I can’t help noticing the design. (Maybe that’s what she’s so happy about.)  There is a great idea here.   Open space.   In this case there is a window in the way which does not allow for an upper cabinet.   Even if the window was 15″ or so further to the left that corner area is very difficult to reach.   One solution is to put open shelves there or, nothing!   It’s okay to have some open spaces in the kitchen when they make sense.   It can even create an opportunity for art, which is always a good thing!

I just LOVE that window,adds to the light and a feeling of outside, even if it means less cabinet space- there’s lotsa cabinets there anyway.



Interesting balance–a wolf stove + Ikea cabinets. I love the openness. Also the blinds that give you privacy and light. Less is more–without tons of space you accumulate less and are very careful about what you need. Nice example of this.

The open space in front of that window is breathing room. Without it the kitchen would be too cluttered..It’s refreshing space..
