Yellow Mediterranean Chef's Kitchen With Chandelier

The chef's kitchen would be right at home in an Italian villa with its gently arched, stone-lined ceiling, stone-enclosed cooktop and hood and beautiful wood cabinetry. Here, too, large open arched doorways make the flow between this space and adjacent areas conveniently easy.
