1 Create smoke and mirrors
While the mirrored wall framed within the cabinetry produces the illusion of more space on one side of the room, a collection of smaller vintage mirrors on this side mimics an artistic gallery display.
2 Go back to black
In the wake of go-to white kitchens, black is making a striking comeback. Here, slim, deep drawers offer organized storage for smaller items like flatware, utensils, spices and linens.
3 Have brass roots
Elegant yet convenient details, such as a brass-railed shelf for glasses and brass rods for hanging everyday pots, pans and dishcloths, lend an air of a fashionable French bistro.
