Contemporary Kitchen Features Dazzling Blue Backsplash

Butcher block waterfall-style countertops and a blue painted brick backsplash bring warmth and character. Dual islands, a built-in bar and a banquette are only some of the spectacular features in this open kitchen and dining space.

Midcentury Kitchen Includes Wood Island

This midcentury kitchen has everything: a stainless stove and range hood, a large island with an eat-in counter, ample cabinetry and a formal dining space just steps away. Four metallic barstools complete the space.

Warm and Welcoming Formal Dining Room

The formal dining room is just as stylish as the kitchen, with contemporary pendant lights and a sleek, glass-topped table. Ten chairs ensure that there are plenty of seats for guests, while wood beams infuse the space with warmth.

Wood-Topped Island Infuses Kitchen With Warmth

Wood waterfall-style countertops infuse the kitchen with warmth. Meanwhile, those black pendant lights hang over the island and ensure that it's bright enough for easy meal-prep.

Open-Concept Kitchen With Vaulted Ceilings

Though this kitchen in East Hampton, N.Y., leans more modern than rustic, the wood beams and floors nod to the home's barn-like exterior. Meanwhile, the vaulted ceilings, white walls and delicate pendants give the space a light and airy quality.

Wooden Built-Ins Create Custom Bar Area

On the other side of the room, a wooden unit with shelves and cabinets creates a custom bar area. Here, cupboards and a cooler keep the owners' favorite glasses and bottles of wine close for entertaining.

Gold Pulls Complement Pendant Lights in Kitchen

Notice how designer Erica Broberg Smith outfitted the kitchen island with gold pulls to complement the metallic pendants. Together, these features add a luxe touch to the space.

Dual Kitchen Islands Allow for Easy Meal-Prep

This crisp white kitchen actually comes with not one, but *two* islands. Whereas the other serves as an eat-in counter, this one offers extra surface space for meal-prep and drawers for storage.

Blue-Painted Brick Adds Touch of Color to Kitchen

Instead of typical white subway tile, this kitchen uses blue-painted brick as an unexpected backsplash. With white cabinetry all around, the brick really stands out.

Midcentury Breakfast Nook With Banquette

Green cushions, teal accents and a dome-like light fixture all give this breakfast nook a touch of midcentury style. A tulip table centers the space, with a banquette and three chairs for extra seating.

Midcentury Living Room Complete With Cozy Fireplace

Those vaulted ceilings continue into the living room, which helps encourage movement between the two spaces. With two slipper chairs, a tufted sofa and a fireplace, this is the perfect spot to gather with family and friends after dinner.
