My Very Chic Friend's Kitchen Remodel

I have a very chic friend! She always looks so stylish without looking trendy- Her look is effortless; she just wraps that amazing scarf around her shoulders and voila! Instant style! Some people are just born with this innate ability to be fabulous!

Unfortunately my very chic friend relocated back to Sydney, Australia and we have had limited contact since her move (thank goodness for FB) She emailed me recently to send on some pictures of her new kitchen remodel. Her kitchen is was just featured in Australia's Luxury Kitchens and Bathrooms.
I noticed the difference between her "American Style" of her house here and the new more minimalist style of her home in Sydney.
I love the flat wall of white cabinetry off set by the ebony black island. The counter stools have wonderful lines and look striking against the white flooring.
Many key appliance are built in and everything has a place

Like her fabulous fashion accessories, its no surprise the lighting she chose added such bling to the space! Notice the wonderful transition from inside to outside.
Note the interesting mirror and the black lighting at the far end of the space. Very chic!
The office - also a very sleek design. The ebony floors look gorgeous with the zebra rug and they are a wonderful contrast to the kitchen floors.
I also like the choice of the raspberry drum light with gold interior. It adds a bit of glamour!
From the office you get a view of the family room - again interesting lighting and a streamlined design. If you are in Sydney, pick up a copy of the June/July issue of Luxury Kitchens and Bathrooms (vol 8-p.74) otherwise check it out here.
A warm thanks to my wonderful friend for sharing her amazing space! You are missed!!
