Dark Stained Beams Influence Spanish Style

Whereas many people might fill the kitchen window with plants and flowers, Komarov uses the space as a stage for her latest fascinations. The most recent: white porcelain and ceramic figurines — some kitsch, some classic — that form a still-life of quirky elegance. “That space is like an altar to me,” she says.

Botanical artist Krislyn Komarov, shown with husband Dmitri, kept her creative streak in check when designing her Los Angeles home. Although visitors will see the occasional exclamation point — here in the form of hanging bubble chairs — the overall effect is more lived in, less design lab. “We didn’t want the house too packed,” Komarov says. “I collect things and love curiosities, but I don’t want a house that looks like people don’t actually live there.”

Painted Cabinets and Hand molded Spanish tile influence this Spanish Style Kitchen Design

The kitchen’s new layout called for an entire wall of cabinets, but it meant the homeowners would be losing two windows. Solution: Place clear cabinet doors in front of the window. The unique window cabinet allows light to enter and creates an interesting display for the homeowners’ glassware.

This one, designed by Kenneth Brown, is one of my favorite patterns. For more information on this kitchen view HGTV episode, 303 from reDesign.
