The Perfect Parisian Bistro Style Kitchen in Toronto

On a day when most of you are cooking in your kitchen, I thought you might enjoy touring this beautiful Parisian bistro style kitchen by Emily Griffin Design located in Toronto, Canada. Not only is it picture perfect, but it has a functional layout and wonderful conveniences.

The upper cabinets are painted in Dropcloth while the lower cabinets are Hague Blue, both by Farrow & Ball. I love the pairing of small glass-front cabinets above larger custom cabinets. Bronze hardware is used on the upper cabinets while gold hardware dresses the lower cabinets. 

On the opposite of the quaint kitchen is a fireplace with beautiful custom tile. The walls above the cabinets feature classic subway tile and open shelving.

A Parisian bistro is a smaller, modest restaurant that serves simple meals, wine, and coffee in a cozy, modest setting. It’s a place where people gather after a long day.  This cream and blue kitchen definitely gives off a cozy vibe with European influences.

A black hood vent tops a European style oven range. Marble counter tops add a touch of sleek glamour. The custom kitchen island features a sink, creating an efficient work flow in the space.

At the other end of the kitchen is a pretty banquette with a pretty table and cross back dining chairs. A Turkish rug underfoot adds a pop of red.

The banquette is flanked by two, large cabinets that add to the kitchen’s storage capability. French baskets look pretty on top but can also be used for serving bread or holding fruit. The landscape painting almost feels like you’re looking out a window.

Dining in this kitchen feels like you’re someplace special, like a little French restaurant on a street corner in Paris.

  1. Very interesting. I’d go for a different color than blue on the bottom cabinets, but love the subway tile and the Dropcloth paint. I like everything else and would love to see the full painting of the swimmer above the fireplace. I even clicked over to Houzz and still didn’t get to see it! Happy Thanksgiving!

  2. I agree with Ms. Tedder. I would like to have the info on paint colors. More info on painting above the banquette. Thank you.

  3. That’s so funny as I too was wondering about the rest of that swimmers painting ..Lol!! Feet? hmmmmm has to be more to that one, yes? I have to laugh. Glad I wasn’t the only one.
    I’m really loving the gold accents lately. These really add a wow factor. I’m a fan of dark blues in the kitchen or greens. I’m not sure of that shade of off white for the cabinets though. I have thought of switching out some of our dark bronze handles for gold and this helps me see that look. I like it.
    That red rug goes so well with that blue space. Love that.

  4. A very nice kitchen. Well, really would not like that feet painting in any of my rooms, but to each their own. The colors are soothing and I always have liked banquette seating.
