A blue-gray painted ceiling emphasizes the lakeside location of the home in which this white kitchen resides.

hardwood / parquet floors done in a herringbone pattern, enormous windows to let light in, juliette balconies, chandelier, plaster detail on the walls and ceiling to add architectural detail, a giant mirror to bounce more light and make the room seem bigger, unobtrusive, low-profile 1960s benches and coffee table to add seating while not blocking the flow of the room. amy pinterest addict
