Hip Kitchen Embraces Pattern and Texture

This city kitchen uses every inch of space to its advantage! Floor-to-ceiling cabinets and an island with drawers provide storage for small appliances and utensils, while a custom wine rack displays the owners' favorite bottles. Graphic wallpaper, a mint green island and two brass chandeliers further update the space for the owners.
