A clean and simple kitchen doesnt have to be sterile and boring. This great Los Angeles cook space reminds us that with a bit of creativity and concise vision, exceptional design neednt be so complicated. The color palette in this space is limited to green, yellow and white, but each one is given ample room to make a bold impact. A green wall behind the modern cabinetry makes the paint look fresh and the appliances clean. Yellow is used appropriately as an accent color and manages to bring out the natural colors in the plant. The table itself is kept simple so as not to hinder the simplistic nature of the design. It also helps bring out the metallic of the cabinetry hardware. Subtle references to a different era, like the clock and overhead lighting, bring interest and a bit of fun to the space as well. Its the little things that make this kitchen warm and inviting, and give all of us aspiring home designers hope that simple solutions do exist.
