The House Beautiful Kitchen of the Year 2010 was designed by Mr. Flip Out himself, Jeff Lewis. Jeff is the main "character" on Bravo's show Flipping Out. Of course this kitchen is perfect... have you ever seen his show? I love the openness of the kitchen.... Lots of light, lots of space; everything a kitchen should be. Enjoy the photos! : )
Jeff calls the design "California modern" and points out that he designed it with lots glass and natural light.
He is also a fan of open shelving.
I really love the island cooktop; this way your back doesn't have to be to everyone while you cook. My grandmother has always had an island cooktop and it makes cooking more fun for us.
Jeff put a little hangout nook to the side of the kitchen. It's separated by a see-through wine rack so that it's still part of the kitchen. Sofa is by Design Within Reach.
I really enjoy the high ceilings. The chairs at the table are similar to our Matteo Leather Barstools. Or, if you like the lower back chairs there's the Alexander Leather Barstool.
The Licht im Raum chandelier he chose as a conversation starter.
And then we go outdoors. I love great outdoor areas so this appealed to me.
