This was an interesting way to pop a kitchen with bland doors. Use crayon colors and yahoo instant pop!!! We saw this a few posts ago but not to this extent. I like it, but it could wear out after a few years. Then we sell you another kitchen. Hey this is a great idea!!!!!! Crayons for everyone!!

I Like This Detail


I thought this was a pretty cool and simple detail. The architect used a very plain panel to create a very useful shelf. The kitchen, in my opinion, could have been juiced up with some

different colors but it does work. I would have also picked something other than Grandma Jones kitchen handle from the 1920’s.

Have You Been Waiting Long?

Ok sorry I should have produced this shot this morning. But the day got away from me…..THIS is the other side of the kitchen….




This is the family use side of a pretty simple kitchen. The funny part about this kitchen? This is the best look of the whole thing. I really love the way the architect has included a seating area with a simple wooden bench and a low eye line book shelf/storage unit to soften the design. In tomorrows post, Kitchen Hipsters, we will see the other side of the kitchen…….

The Longest Drawer In the Show

This was an interesting idea. The company took 2 drawer systems and applied 1 drawer panel…The look was very clean and
horizontal. The downside was you had to open up a rather huge drawer every time you wanted something. ….


Hipsters you will have to look closely to get all the very simple design points at work here. When you figure them out let me know……I like this but it would have to be in the right situation.

One problem with minimal homes and kitchens? Every thing has to be perfect because even the smallest perfection is a glaring error. Contemporary or modern is the toughest type of construction to do well.


Simple Panels

This was probably tougher to build than to plan. The cabinet doors are very tightly and evenly placed. Every thing has to be perfect in order to make this work. The result is a very cool back panel bank that looks very nice. Each panel opens for storage. It is a little commercial but could be great in the right element.


Appliance Handles

Hipsters this is something almost new. Appliance handles on your kitchen cabinets. They are REALLY big and easy to grab. I am not so sure I liked the in your face look but some of the cabinet companies are using them.

Cabinet Colors

Everyone but me? You might have seen this before….but now you will revisit it as I have the word processor. I like the use of basic colors in conjunction with the white shown here. It is an accent I just have not thought about. It is fresh and a nice look for your spring kitchen.


Warmth With Wood


This kitchen just made me feel good. I liked the use of wood. I especially liked the heavy bar top for conversation with the cook. I am not sure but I might be inclined to stab people folks who talk to much while I am cooking, but….. a nice bottle of wine could cure that urge. The use of glass uppers and lighting on the top row of the was just enough. I also liked the use of the wicker bar stools.
