Lower the Corners: If you’re designing a kitchen from scratch, galley (or walk-via) kitchens are environment friendly layouts that do not leave a lot of useless house. Designer Jill Sharp Weeks put in iron pendant lights from Currey & Company above the oversize kitchen island in her Charleston residence The Indian picket trunk with camel-bone inlay homes toys for Weeks’s Scottish terrier, Angus.

This Scandinavian type kitchen makes use of a wall to make a herb garden, a chalkboard and a storage organiser in one. She beefed up a vintage demilune chest by adding rear cupboards and a marble prime to create the central island. By minimizing the amount of cabinets on the walls, the designer stored this kitchen gentle and airy.
