Open, Contemporary Kitchen

Designer Lauren Levant Bland redesigns a childhood kitchen into a modern space for a dynamic, globe-trotting family.

Functional and Stylish

The room was outfitted so each wall serves a distinct purpose: clean-up, cooking and refrigeration.

Architectural Details

The large range hood fits the white scheme and becomes one of the room's main focal points, in scale with other dimensions.

Practical Island

All parts of the island serve functions, including the ends for housing extra secondary equipment.

Simplicity is Key

The backsplash is another detail that adds elegance without overpowering the room's quiet atmosphere.

Use Vertical Space

Cabinetry goes to the ceiling for extra room and a classic finished look.

Balanced Lighting

Two chandeliers balance the length of the island and raise the eye upward, along with the hood and column effect of cabinets.
