Kitchens are the heart and soul of a home. We all spend so much more time in the kitchen than we realize. More and more kitchens are featuring islands and counter seating so the kitchen draws in even more people. Think of your last family gathering or party. Where does everyone end up – in the kitchen – talking, laughing and sharing the celebration of food and life. These 10 examples are beautiful kitchens where it would be easy and fun to join the festivities.
Elegance is the first feeling that comes to mind as you visit My Home in Paris the October Homebyme project of the month winner created by vpo! This is a home with a touch of magic. The more you look, the more amazed you are at how rich a story is told with so few elements. Each space is clearly defined with just the right amount of furniture, subtle changes in materials and a restrained use of color. Textures and reflective surfaces fit the needs of each functional area.
“What do you see?” Many cultures around the world understand that every window is an opportunity to tell a captivating story both inside and outside the home. From the outside the size and pattern of windows helps set our expectations for what being inside will be like. From the inside each individual window has its own special story to tell. As you approach this entrance, the huge windows blend the outside with the inside and give an enticing view all the way through the home.
