A small kitchen in Valencia, Spain is what one author calls an ideal space. She has this viewpoint due to the use of unique wallpaper.  All the tools and fixtures of a kitchen being in just the right location and not hidden, as well as the fact that it’s not a cookie-cutter modern design and unique by itself.

Key Takeaways:

  • Even just a hint of pattern, like the vintage-looking floral over Adela’s cabinetry, adds instant charm (and looks like it could have been there for decades…in fact, I’m not entirely sure it hasn’t been!).
  • Flour, sugar, etc. ready to go on the counter? When kept in clear canisters, they blend into the environment.
  • And overall, nothing in this kitchen, besides maybe a few modern appliances, dates it in any way.

“The kitchen isn’t usually the first spot you think to put up decorative wallcoverings, but that doesn’t mean it shouldn’t be.”
