Chic Fabrice Bana, Interior Blogger“Whilst it has to be said this kitchen doesn’t look like the archetypal kitchen used on a daily basis by a busy family or a Domestic Goddess, this small, no-nonsense galley kitchen designed by and belonging to Jean-Louis Deniot is impactful and rather ravishing. The simple, modern cabinetry with its bespoke handles and knobs is bejewelled with hammered brass which gives the room a warm, sexy glow and slightly distorted reflection. The grey and off-white marble on the walls, work surfaces and the floor gently balances out the room anchored by the vintage ceiling light. The result is fresh, elegant, practical; this room proves to show metallics can be used in a kitchen and are not necessarily cold.” Get the Look SeraxCarara Rectangular Marble Platter FlosIC Wall/Ceiling Light – Brass Georg JensenAlfredo Vase – Stainless Steel A by AmaraKoonam Vase Atelier SwarovskiBlack Diamond Candlestick SourceJenny Kakoudakis, Interior Blogger“Meant as a gathering place for its restaurateur owner and mother of five, Ali Cayne, this eclectic space is found within a New York townhouse. I have chosen it as it combines elements of style and functionality in equal measure. The Lacanche cooker and hood in black and brass and the marble worktops are jaw dropping features. The walls are covered in white “metro” tiles framed in black grout, something we don’t see often and which I feel will look clean and new for longer. I love the grey blue cabinets with brass pull handles (an easy update for any shaker style kitchen) as well as the open shelving around the room which is a great way to show off stylish collections of crockery while making everything readily accessible. The black Tolix bar stools make the place look less formal.”SourceKimberly Duran, Interior Blogger“Christine Dovey’s glamorous white marble and gold kitchen is definitely my favourite kitchen of all time. The white marble paired with gold accents creates a vintage and yet, totally contemporary space and it’s unashamedly feminine. The ornate vintage lighting and subtle pale pink touches are just the stylish cherries on top and I love every inch of its glamorous look. I’d trade kitchens with her in a heartbeat!”SourceTyphanie Peterson, Textile Designer and Interior Decorator“It’s hard to create an elegant open kitchen in a small space but I know that with the right planning and equipment the task can be accomplished. This tiny kitchen fits snugly into a 750sqft Manhattan apartment. I love the use of the light wall and cabinetry colors mixed with just a pop of bold color in a modern print. This kitchen gives new life to the words form and function. One great tip to take away from this kitchen design, is the use of refrigerator and freezer drawers. If you don’t need a full size refrigerator it is always a great idea to look for ways to downsize.”SourceEmilie Jacob, Interior Blogger“I first stumbled upon interior design Athena Caldernone’s kitchen in Harpers Bazaar a couple of years ago and since then it’s been cropping up pretty much everywhere; magazines, blogs, interiors books…. And no wonder, it’s literally a piece of art (like the rest of her Brooklyn pad!). Calderone is the brain behind the fabulous blog Eye Swoon, a destination for all things design and food. And swooning, I certainly am!On paper, this is not a kitchen I’d be normally drawn to. I have a penchant for splashes of neon colours in interiors, and this room has none. But somehow I can’t take my eyes off it. It’s all in the little details: the brass contouring the cabinetry and lining these incredible Thomas O’Brien pendant lights; the beautiful marble countertop; the wooden stools and panels, the slightly different shades of bluish-grey effortlessly juxtaposed… Who knew you could fall in love with a tone-on-tone kitchen?”SourceMolly Costello, Interior Blogger“Scandi chic is all about simplicity and functionality with an understated beauty, and this kitchen is a perfect example. Its white tiles, marble worktops and cool green wooden units with leather pulls make for a clean and uncluttered look, but without being sterile. Beauty shines through in its truth to materials aesthetic, and the use of classic elements such as the wooden pedestal table with Thonet chairs. Metal accents add a touch of elegance – the brass mixer tap, and oh, what a chandelier! Combining minimalism and glamour, this has to be my perfect kitchen.”SourceJane Eve Anderson, Interior Stylist“I love this Buster and Punch Kitchen which is showcased on their website under their Mews Flat project. We have used these great cabinet handles in one of our recent projects which just gives an overall stylish finish. I am also a huge fan of grey painted cabinetry contrasting with the light marble worktops. Plenty of storage is essential in a well functioning kitchen and these double height cupboards do exactly that. A lovely elegant kitchen perfect for a family or a batchelor.”

ColourfulSourceKaren Clough, Interior Blogger“The word I’d use to describe this kitchen over any other is ‘unforgettable’. It’s bold. It’s quirky. It’s a conversation starter whilst not being an assault on the eyes. I love how it is unapologetically a lived-in and practical home. Instead of locking away the products that define the room’s function, this kitchen has celebrated them with colourful fruit bowls and stools paired against darker wall accessories and lighting fixtures for extra contrast. It is packed with personality and that bright geometric paint job is simply incredible and, to me, timeless.” Get the Look KartellCharles Ghost Stool – Orange BloomingvilleJars with Bamboo Lid – Set of 3 Old School ElectricBritish Spun-Steel Factory Pendant DualitClassic Toaster – Red Tina Frey DesignsWide Serving Bowl SourceJacquin Milhouse, Interior Blogger“A little inspiration never hurts when you’re in the kitchen and this color burst kitchen certainly delivers. I love that this kitchen has so many unexpected pops of color! It feels young, fresh, and energizing. I also enjoy all of the beautiful textures and patterns present. Its feature planter wall and gold barstools are a treat in this space as well, but I must say that the graphic, wrap-around tile wall is my favorite. This kitchen has a collected feel, while still maintaining a contemporary look. A true visual delight!”SourceKate Beavis, Interior Blogger“My favourite kitchen is this original 1950s English Rose owned by Sarah Bradbury from Planet Sputnik which I featured in my book Style Your Modern Vintage Home. It was the “must have” kitchen of the time, produced in the UK out of stockpiled aluminium left over from spitfire manufacturing during the war. It was also the first modular kitchen with a metal frame that could be bolted together easily. I love the aesthetics as well as the practicality- the curved front drawers enabled a deeper worktop without losing floor space which was perfect for the 50s housewife. John Lewis make a modern version but you can’t beat the original! This example is extra special due to the addition of other vintage accessories such as the American cannisters and Caddymatic tea dispenser.”SourceJanice Issitt, Interior Blogger“I love my kitchen because it is personalised to exactly my taste and not one bought from a catalogue. I dislike hard black and white surfaces, preferring wood, natural or painted, and preferably worn and chipped. I love vintage kitchenalia, so collections of that are on the shelves and in the glass fronted cupboards. I re-paint the kitchen myself, and lately in pastel shades to match the vintage style appliances. The door knobs are all mismatched and so is the china and cups. Im a colour fanatic so a great way to change the colours of your kitchen are with paint or to add fabric curtains to cover white goods.”SourceBrenda Kula-Pruitt, Interior Blogger“Probably most would not understand why I chose the photo of this kitchen as my favourite. So I’ll explain. This looks like someone’s grandmother’s kitchen. So it evokes many warm feelings in me. I absolutely love eat-in kitchens, and this one has that. I like white kitchen appliances, not stainless steel, which I find too harsh and industrial. I love the red and turquoise colour combination. The simplicity of the cabinets. The hardwood floors. The retro kitchen table surrounded by blue wooden chairs. I am crazy for polka dots. And most especially red and white polka dots. This kitchen carries with it a whimsical theme that makes me smile when I gaze at it. It looks like a lived in kitchen. One where love resides within its walls.”SourcePaula Benson, Interior Blogger“I love clean lines, granite and stainless steel but conversely, one of my favourite kitchens is a retro, fun, stylish affair. The kitchen in Don and Megan’s 1960s Park Avenue apartment in Mad Men is a Mid Century Modern masterpiece. Rich blue and vibrant orange cabinet doors vie for attention, zinging out from their dark walnut borders, complimented by an unusual brown Frigidaire. At a time when open plan became all the rage, a kitchen on full view meant it needed to look damn good as well as be practical.”SourceRebecca Davies, Interior Designer“I absolutely love this kitchen despite it being red and blue, which are colours I never usually go for. And in a world of neutral kitchens, what a breath of fresh air to find one that is so bold and colourful and confident. Applying patterned tiles to the entire wall gives the room drama and interest, and I love the juxtaposition of the vintage wall cabinet and chandelier against the contemporary sleek units and worktop. Little pops of pink and green, and the warm colour of the wooden floor, all go towards making this kitchen not only beautiful, but homely as well.”SourceYasmin Chopin, Interior Blogger“When you move into a new home the kitchen is probably the most difficult room to change if it doesn’t already fit with your taste and style. The design of this kitchen, made and installed by Cimitree, really excites me for the clever way it uses the space. It is an awkwardly shaped room and each expertly crafted unit is given what seems a generous amount of space. This allows light to become an active element in the design as it reaches the surfaces and shows off the colours, curves and details. The plain white walls make the room appear like an art gallery and the kitchen units are the star exhibits. The combination of colours is unusual and hark back to the sixties for me although I understand the inspiration was Art Deco; you can see how the two periods meld together creating a unique style. The care and skill that has gone into the making is self-evident, you can look at this kitchen for a long time and keep seeing more beauty. I adore the kick boards! I would be very proud to own a kitchen like this.”SourceKatrina West, Interior Blogger“To me, a kitchen must be practical, stylish & the heart of a home. I love an eclectic mix of modern style fused harmoniously with traditional: Here, the original parquet flooring & cooker hood elements blend perfectly to create a classic style with a contemporary edge. The clean lines of the white units establish a calm, open space, whilst styling with bright pops of colour add heaps of character.”Find more kitchen design ideas on the Amara site and discover the shop by kitchen edit.
