Transitional Kitchen With Industrial-Country Flair

Designer Lindsay Chambers sought to update a classic kitchen with an industrial-country approach. The chevron patterned backsplash adds drama and depth to the small space, while white and gray cabinets give the room a rural vibe. And who wouldn't love the wrought iron and repurposed wood barstools?

Most people have two priorities when they're designing a kitchen: counters and cabinets. But Kerri Hoyt-Pack didn't have either of those staples at the top of her renovation list. Instead, she and her husband, Dan, outfitted their 216-square-foot space with unconventional pieces that you might say defy standard American kitchen plans. As a global marketing vice president at Nike, Kerri has traveled the world, picking up unique supplies — and lots of unexpected ideas — along the way.

For the Family

With the open concept plan, the Olivares family can spend time together while the parents are cooking or doing laundry. Amy called the modern farmhouse design, "welcoming and warm" and said "The designers made all of their dreams come true." Ernesto said, "I can't wait to see my daughter smile in here, with all of us. It felt like our home." Breegan chose white cabinets with frosted glass for the Olivares kitchen, keeping high style but allowing to diffuse whatever daily life may bring.

White Farmhouse Sink in Cottage Kitchen

The farmhouse sink in this green kitchen adds a unique element to the space but doesn't detract from the original charm of the house. This deep, white sink gives the homeowners plenty of space for prep and washing, and it helps keep the feel of the kitchen soft and inviting. The shutters just above the sink are a more traditional element of the home and help to block light in the evening or bring light into the space in the morning.
