Galley Kitchen | The sage green kitchen cabinetry has generous space for dinnerware and pantry items, and a fossilized countertop surface adds a sense of history to the space.

Lighten Up Kitchen Update | The walls, trim, cabinetry, and ceiling are all painted Benjamin Moore's Linen White in the same eggshell finish. Meanwhile, hammered metal pendant lights and newly refinished wood floors are a nice counterpoint to the mainly white space.

Lighten Up Kitchen Update

A Burst of Citrus | To help liven up the classic white walls and cabinetry (painted Benjamin Moore's Ballet White), designer Melissa Haynes carefully chose a palette of green and orange accents. Mixing metals, such as brass hardware with stainless steel, provided the ideal finishing touch to modernize the look.

Town & Country | A rustic farm table takes the place of a central island in the kitchen, creating a spot for casual meals.

Large, Light Space | Large spaces–like this bright, roomy kitchen–can convey a cottage feel, too. The owner added 15 feet to the room and a row of French doors for maximum light and a view of the garden out back.

Large, Light Space

Vintage-Style | A small but efficient island holds refrigerator drawers and a bookcase for cookbooks. Painted deep gray to contrast with the lighter color of the cabinets and topped with marble, it feels vintage and authentic to the homes' architecture.


Cottage Revival | This kitchen was designed to be the biggest room in the house. There's no formal dining space except for the large farm table. And the industrial island offers a utilitarian twist to contrast with the room's old-world style.
