Ten WHITE kitchens to inspire your home design and decor.
I adore white kitchens simply because they are so fresh, clean and bright.
A custom island with a Calacutta Gold marble waterfall countertop and glass and polished nickel details anchors this large, all-white kitchen in New York designed by Thomas Pheasant with an ideal spot for gathering. The range hood is Wolf and the pendant lights are from Holly Hunt.
This Palm Beach kitchen by designer Susan Zises Green is fully outfitted by Officine Gullo, from white cabinetry to certain appliances like a pizza oven, which infuses the space with a retro vibe. The barstools are by BK Antiques.
Designer Phoebe Howard filled this Palm Beach kitchen with elements like white Shaker-style cabinets, a subway tile backsplash, marble countertops, and a farmhouse sink by Rohl that will never go out of style. The range is from Wolf, the custom pendant lights are by Paul Ferrante, and the barstools are from Mr. Brown covered in a Raoul Textiles fabric.
Designer Timothy Whealon kept things pretty simple when updating this 19th-century Connecticut home, accenting the all-white kitchen with rich woods, like the stools from Fair and the reclaimed antique chestnut flooring. A roman shade in Kravet fabric with Claremont trim adds softness. The ceiling is painted Wimborne White by Farrow & Ball.
In this New Jersey kitchen, designer Miles Redd tiled all the walls up to the ceiling in white subway tile from Waterworks. “It might surprise you, but white is one of my favorite colors,” says Redd, best known for decorating rooms in dazzling shades of red, turquoise, and green. “There is nothing more delicious than a white lacquer box.”
A Hint of Glint
Brass details, from the shelving to the stools, up the glam factor in this all-white kitchen in Atlanta by designer Melanie Turner. The Rohl sink boasts Waterworks fittings, the hood and the range are from Officine Gullo, the cabinetry hardware is from Matthew Quinn Collection, and the globe pendant lights are from Bobo Intriguing Objects.
Tone on Tone
At his Montecito, California, home, designer John Saladino enlivened his kitchen’s white walls with English and Continental creamware hung in a pattern that frames the round window. The vent hood is by Thermador and the sink fittings are Blanco.
Uplifting Blue Accents
Designer Meg Braff expanded this Long Island kitchen with a sea of white updates: white cabinetry (painted White by Fine Paints of Europe), a white double range from BlueStar, thick Danby marble countertops on the octagonal island. The aqua ceiling (Picture Perfect by Benjamin Moore) plus a blue-patterned wallcovering and matching roman shade from Braff’s textile collection visually expand the space by drawing the eye up. The sink fixtures and hardware are by Waterworks and the pendant light is by Vaughan.
Designer James Michael Howard anchored this modern, all-white kitchen in Westchester, New York, by extending the Breccia Imperiale marble countertop and backsplash up to the ceiling on the wall behind the range. The stone’s organic pattern provides a focal point within the open-plan space. The refrigerator is Sub-Zero, the range is Wolf, the globe pendants are The Urban Electric Co., and the barstools are Suzanne Kasler for Hickory Chair.
Less Is More
Elegant restraint reigns in this sophisticated yet simple white kitchen where beautiful materials shine brighter than extra ornamentation. Working with architect D. Stanley Dixon, designer Carolyn Malone paved the floors with French limestone, clad the island entirely with Imperial Danby marble, and lined the ceiling with limed reclaimed oak beams. The midcentury oval starbursts are from Parc Monceau and the chandelier is David Weeks Studio.
