It’s two weeks till Thanksgiving here in the U.S., and I’m thinking kitchen thoughts. Not food, but the kitchen as a space, for I still have a few adjustments to make in our kitchen.
While browsing for ideas, I came across a kitchen with Moroccan-inspired elements:
It’s from the home of Meg and Doug Van Lith and family in Phoenix, AZ.
I love wood and plants, and although the wood tones here are darker than what I prefer, the result creates such an inviting kitchen. Although ceiling-height tile backsplashes can feel cold and clinical, that’s not the case this time; the warm tones in the rest of the space counteract the backsplash. Also, the tile pattern carefully coordinates with the lighting over the island, and the open shelving and plants soften the strict black and white color scheme. Clearly Meg knows what she’s doing. It would be a pleasure to live in that house!
Also, I LOVE that they’re using their dining table for other everyday activities too, such as puzzle building. For me, a home isn’t a home if it’s too precious.
Visit the Design*Sponge article for more photos of the gorgeous Van Lith home.
Alas, as beautiful as this kitchen is, it doesn’t solve my current problem. Oh well, what a delightful excuse to browse more! 🙂
Note: I wasn’t paid or perked to mention this; just passing along a good thing.
