Gaines knows that the kitchen is the heart of the home, and she kept that in mind when designing this kitchen for a family of four. It was important for the mom of the house to see out into her living room from the kitchen, so Gaines made the space really open with a great flow.
The designer also made sure that the owner, who collects dishes, was able to display her plates. Not only did Gaines style them on top of the cabinets, but she also showcased them in a hutch-styled cabinet that is simply and classy.
If you’re thinking of redesigning your kitchen, Gaines’s one piece of advice is to have fun with the pieces you pick. She notes that when it comes to the metals used in the space, there is no right or wrong. Mixing and matching can add a sense of personality and style that is truly unique to you and your family.
