If you can’t take the heat, be sure to steer clear of this smoking-hot, gray kitchen by our February Designer of the Month, Corine Maggio. The first step in her recipe for a light, bright and totally fresh kitchen design? Skip wall-to-wall white and coat cabinets with a dash of peppery pigment instead. Yield drool-worthy results by recreating Corine’s stylish juxtaposition of edgy, black-paned glass doors against a Carrara marble backsplash. Next step? Toss out expired hardware and use modern acrylic-and-brass handles to upgrade your space. Install glossy, globe pendants overhead and use stylish glass jars to hide secret ingredients in plain sight. Finally, create coziness by accessorizing countertops with warm natural elements, like an olivewood bowl or a framed landscape print. Find the full ingredients for a pretty, peppery kitchen in the links below.
