White Cottage Kitchen With Metal Chandelier

A few Mediterranean touches—the chandelier and pendant lights—take this white kitchen in a unique direction. Its square shape is maximized for efficiency with a central island and built-in storage units like the wine rack above the refrigerator.

White Mediterranean Kitchen into Breakfast Room

An open double doorway connects the pretty kitchen to an adjacent breakfast room. Hardwood floors and similar upholstery for the dining chairs and barstools also help the two areas feel unified.

Gray Kitchen Backsplash and Range Hood

Amazing grays! In this kitchen, the backsplash above the range and the range hood use subtly different shades of the neutral with so-pretty results.

Gray Mediterranean Kitchen With Chandelier

A large bank of windows lets natural light stream into the kitchen and gives any dish washers the bonus of a pretty view. Light gray cabinets and a tile backsplash soften the crisp white countertops and farmhouse sink.

Gray Country Kitchen With Black Pendants

Pendant lights over the kitchen sink bring spotlight illumination to a major prep area. These delicate ones do the job without interfering with the window's expansive view.

Pitcher and Gray Tile Kitchen Backsplash

Moroccan-style tiles in shades of cream and gray add a hint of the exotic to the kitchen backsplash.

White Transitional Dining Room With Round Wood Table

A round dining table keeps the mood friendly and casual. Overhead, the wrought-iron chandelier is a delicate pairing with the pale gray china cabinet.

Dining Room With Wrought Iron Chandelier

In a room with a neutral palette, add visual interest through unusual shapes or textures. The wavy spires of the dining room chandelier echo the curves in the china cabinet windows.

Hallway and Sconces

Open doorways maintain a continuous sightline through the home, as seen here in the passageway through the dining room.

White Mediterranean Sitting Area With Fireplace

Fireplace plus two generous armchairs equals a cozy sitting area. Mediterranean detailing adds tasteful elegance.

White Living Room With Paperwhites

Bulbs like these paperwhites make a pretty centerpiece that lasts for weeks. They're a fresh companion to the living room's fresh easy slipcovered chairs and white sofa.
