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.
