It's not too often that a small, urban kitchen catches my attention. Usually, they seem to be one of two predictable types: either a by-the-book, Euro-style space, or a 'spontaneously' messy tableau that aspires to inclusion in The Selby. This room is refreshingly different, preserving some of its indigenous charms [the tile floor and the ceiling medallion] while adding new, necessary cabinets and appliances. Note the range hood, atop the tiled portion of the wall, squeezed in between the windows. I like that.
