The kitchen is the heart of the home, and it’s always so exciting to see people take bold steps to make a kitchen their own space. This kitchen had some great things going for it already: open space, bright lighting and of course, its owner Katie’s design savvy, which clearly shines through in this happy, modern new kitchen.
I’m a sucker for tile, and this neutral gray backsplash is calling my name. The pendant lights are a lovely touch over the warm wood counter top, and the whole space has a touch of Scandinavian minimalism that really appeals to me. Plus, if the cat loves it, how can it not be the perfect kitchen? Amazing job, Katie! — Kate

Too many beautiful kitchens! I’m beginning to feel serious envy of all the bright sunlight and cabinet space I’m seeing. This kitchen makeover by Joi Svezia is making me envious in other ways, as well. Joi is lucky enough to have a skilled woodworker in her family — the lovely hardwood table and island were made by Joi’s father. The overall effect of this kitchen and its color palette —white, dark browns and grays and the pop of bright pinks and greens — is sophisticated, calming and chic. Great transformation, Joi!
