We've been eyeing this beautiful kitchen makeover from Seattle-based interior designers Synergy Design Studio for a while now. Not only is it appealing and approachable for normal folks, but Synergy manages to convey a sense of purpose in their design beyond the flashy and faddish.
From Synergy's website: "Remodeling a kitchen involves a lot from you. It changes the way you nurture yourself every day and how you interact in the process...We design kitchens that reflect your lifestyles and how you enjoy life."
We love the wall color and the red pendant lamp above the eating area. Also, check out the plants in the woven storage baskets — a nice, earthy touch of (literal) green.
