This is actually a butler's pantry in Jessica Buckley's (jessicabuckley.co...) home, but is also a great idea for a small-space kitchen. Great use of space. Checkerboard floor. Brick backsplash. Light and bright colors for a room with little natural light. For more pictures of her home visit Paloma Contreras's blog called La Dolce Vita.
Camouflage appliances with custom cabinetry in small spaces, as was done with this fridge, freezer and dishwasher. Shallow storage drawers are hidden in the toekicks, and hold less used items like fine silverware. Leaded-glass panes help make the tight space look larger.
