Since space was an issue in this small kitchen, homeowner and Style at Home executive editor Suzanne Moutis opted for square-footage-saving elements like an 18-inch dishwasher (instead of the typical 24-inch) and an overhang to act as a breakfast bar.
Blue and white and beautiful all over, even the insides of Suzanne’s cabinets could really be on display. Her favourite cookbooks share space with all the first aid musts that a mother and dog owner has on hand – everything from bacon-printed bandages (Suzanne’s, not her son’s) to medicine for the dogs is housed here.
Small bursts of colour
Lemons sit in the sun beside the sink, ready to add flavour to a cool glass of water on the go. Mini bowls and vintage McCoy planters (pottery Suzanne collects) on the windowsill hold dog treats, sometimes kid treats, and rings while she washes dishes.
