We’re thrilled to have featured some truly stunning kitchens , all of which were packed with genius steal-worthy decorating ideas. You wouldn’t expect to find a streamlined, modern-leaning kitchen in a grand 1868 home located in New Orleans’s Garden District, but Sara and Paul Costello aren’t ones to adhere to convention. You get lots of natural lighting, airy feel, and a really interesting kitchen feature.
The pinstripe pattern of the chair cushions echoes the detailing on the light fixtures and shades, lending energy to this clean-lined kitchen. Consult a kitchen planner or contractor for complicated improvements, especially if electrical work or building permits are involved.
