Here the white kitchen lives up to its glamorous potential, thanks to the well-placed chandelier.
This mostly-white kitchen has a few vintage touches, like the schoolhouse pendant lights, drawer pulls and Tolix stools, which keeps it from being cold and sterile.
Here the same designer used some more fanciful touches, like that fabulous spherical pendant, the S-scroll door pull, the patterned floor and the details on the glass cabinet doors to add personality to a white slate.
