Today’s renewed interest in self-reliance through gardening means that your kitchen probably serves as a daily way station for fresh essential herbs, fruits, and veggies, en route from your modern victory garden to your dining table. Creating meals is more than enjoyable when your kitchen is light, bright, and trimly stocked with everything you need within handy reach. An inspirational kitchen like the one pictured here, which is big on function but small on space, is all the more impressive as it is actually part of a tiny 200 square foot home.
Through just a few simple style decisions – heavy reliance on white surfaces, use of extra windows and placement of open, accessible shelving rather than cabinetry – a seeming abundance of elbow room welcomes the eye. The mixed media walls, done in gleaming white subway tiles as well as both rustic, unfinished and painted white barn board, deftly create a hybrid farmhouse cottage kitchen. And the contrasting vibrant color of the produce and plants in almost every nook make the roomscape anything but a whitewash.
