A Modest-Sized Kitchen Gets Modern Pizzazz and Practicality

Designer Kim Myles transforms a boring white kitchen into a modern space with a vintage twist.

  • Before: Not Enough Space

    This boring uninspiring kitchen is less than ideal for entertaining.

  • After: Modern Yet Retro

    Kim creates a fun hangout for friends, as well as a space that inspires the homeowners. With a color palette of white, black and red, she designs a kitchen that mixes modern with the traditional.

  • Vintage Stove

    Kim updates the vintage stove with a modern hood. The stove and its new hood are the perfect example of the style blend in this kitchen — modern and retro.

  • Simple Statements

    Kim recommends keeping everything scaled and slimmed down in a smaller space. No hangout would be complete without seating, so she brings in a Barcelona chair and a couple of stools for the counter.
