Pure and Simple Architect Ron Radziner creates a beautiful sunken kitchen in a Venice, Calif. home. Enclosed by windows, the kitchen acts as the hub of the residence and provides views to the backyard, pool, living areas and outdoor patio. Traditional Chic Designer Vicente Wolf mixes contemporary and traditional styles in this open, bright kitchen. The island, which has a base of stainless steel, features Jacobean-style legs. Floor-to-ceiling glass cabinets add a lot of natural light to the kitchen, which only has one window. Light and Airy This Chicago area kitchen is designed by Cohen & Hacker Architects to take full advantage of the garden view. Even the cabinets are glass, front and back so one can see right through. The white color palette and high ceilings give this kitchen a monumental feeling. A single slab of gray-white granite covers the massive island, which also provides extra seating for the family. Contemporary Cool This Toronto kitchen features Ipe cabinets, Corian countertops and a six-foot island that seats up to ten people on modern stools with a playful light fixture hangs above. While it’s contemporary in style, it still remains warm and accessible because of the serene color palette. Design by Ciccone Simone European Inspiration In New York state’s picturesque Hudson Valley, this farmhouse kitchen was given a subtle European flavor by art-dealer-turned-designer Selina van der Geest. Classic Subtlety Architect William Hefner took full advantage of the California sun when he designed this traditional kitchen. Materials used include washed oak and Calcutta marble, while the chairs and banquette are covered in easy clean faux leather – perfect for a family. Color and materials from the rest of the house flow into the kitchen, featuring tongue-and-groove oak cabinets, stainless steel and a subtle color palette. Italian Style Designer Mark Cutler creates a modern Italian-style kitchen that features rift sawn oak cabinets, skylights, stainless steel appliances and slate countertops. Rustic materials, like the stained concrete floor, make the kitchen feel a repurposed barn. Skylights add a lofty feeling to the space, while also providing tons of natural light. The designer also filled the room with an eclectic mix of furnishings, including eight folk art chairs and a buffet from the Paris exhibition. Multi-Functional Modernist New York architects from Workshop/APD designed this lofty kitchen in square-footage-starved Manhattan. The kitchen was designed to be a floating element, the hub of energy within a large open loft space. The windows border all sides to capture the light and bring it into the space. A pull-out table allows the space to be reconfigured based on the needs of the user and appliances and workspace are efficiently integrated into a sleek design. Rustic Island Designer Sherrill Canet creates a chef’s square kitchen with wonderful architectural details that provide the perfect breakfast spot. The custom-made natural wood island has seating space for eight and can easily accommodate the family for meals. The height of the space and the exaggerated arch brings the eye up and creates a welcoming energy. Woven leather chairs add a chic element, while four lanterns punctuated the space with a graphical design. Sunnyside Kitchen An informal Southampton kitchen features a spacious seating area with several dining options: the counter, the resizable table or the screened-in porch. Dark wood floors and tables contrast well with the light peach and green color scheme. Design by John Barman
