We loved this shot of a renovation and house addition in London by Object Architecture. That looks to us like an Ikea kitchen. And look at the washer/dryer in the kitchen - we're completely on board with that.
This is a dream multipurpose room that could practically stand alone as an apartment, not just a piece of a larger residence. It has all the essentials of home: a place to cook, eat, work, and relax (indoors and out). Which leads us to our favorite element: that terrific wall of opening windows.
