Riccardo Caracciolo, a talented Home Improvement Design Services provider based in Orvieto, a small village in Umbria, Italy shares this charming image of a farmhouse in Maremma, Italy (in Tuscany). What's not to like in this photo? Beautiful color combinations of warm whites, yellows and medium brown wood tones. This authentic Tuscany farmhouse kitchen would make a great design for anyone creating Spanish style, French style or Tuscany themed interior design for their kitchen. I also like the antique kitchen table with bentwood chairs and how the top was converted to marble- a great idea for a hybrid of both an island, work space and dine in kitchen seating. I also like the unique cabinet design with the fabric fronts, the plate shelf under the upper cabs, the cool scroll work on the cabinets. Very cool project Riccardo. Amazing work!
Laura Rosenthal of Del Mar, California shares a Spanish style home design there just outside of San Diego, CA. This Spanish kitchen caught my eye for the elegant range hood design to goes so well with Spanish style interior design. The special 3 dimensional wall treatment at the top of the wall is creative, unique and adds to the custom look and feel of this very high end home in Southern California. The pass through window at the kitchen sink is also very cool for everyday use, and being poolside, I can see how this arrangement would be really fun for family and guests, alike. Sit near the pool outside, but be engaged with the cook in the kitchen at the same time. The designers also changed it up and introduced a dining table with chairs and a bench for another touch of warming up this family gathering spot. Nice job!
