Something Old, New, Borrowed + Blue

Here is a kitchen that aesthetically reflects the disjointed feeling that accompanies Mondays. With a little imagination and a willingness to turn a blind eye to a few telltale elements—the recessed LED ceiling lights, and the tea kettle Michael Graves designed in 1980 among them—this room could pass for a modernistic 1960s space. The slab front doors and curious stone wall do have a strong retro vibe, but it's more than belied by the spiral brass chandelier and the contemporary chairs.
