A classic all white kitchen with a twist



It was love at first sight when I saw Toronto stylist Sasha Seymour's kitchen - the perfect blend of timeless classics - white subway tile, carrera marble and herringbone wood floor, with unexpected twists -  a sculptural chandelier from the 1970s, brass hardware (vs. the traditional chrome and stainless steel) and of course, the pièce de résistance - a counter height fireplace.  The combination of all these elements was just so interesting and unique but still classic enough to be enduring. Flooded with light from the skylight above, the overall feeling is so fresh. This space proves that classic all white can be anything but boring - and also, that perhaps every kitchen needs a fireplace.









House and Home's Suzanne Dimma gives a video tour of Sasha's home here.

Awesome. That hood !! Just shows how a small space can be transformed by someone's vision. Great post!

I agree with the above commenter. This is one of my favourite small/city spaces. Most images in magazines are of large kitchens in massive homes-it's refreshing to see gorgeous design inspiration that's appropriate for a smaller home.

Love this space every time I see it! So beautiful!

I've been a long time follower of your blog and love it! I just started my own blog a couple of weeks ago and would love for you to take a peek and, if you like what you see, follow.

Oh yes, this kitchen immediately made it into my "best of the best" pile. It is certainly one of the best I have ever seen in Toronto.

The fireplace truly adds a special touch—and with such a tall space, it's perfect! x

What a beautiful interior design. The skylights all over the house gave it a unique type of lighting. It'll be much more appreciated during the evening.

Omigawd, GOLD skirting boards! I thought I had done well for myself putting mirrors on mine- this is the breathing definition of high octane domestic glamour!
