Tips on creating the perfect kitchen for a loft apartment

Today I’m sharing a fun design concept for anyone needing kitchen inspiration. This particular layout would be perfect for a loft apartment (at least that’s where I envision it) …Like all of my other designs, I like to tell the story behind each creation. I actually started this design with the table and pendant and went from there. I knew I wanted to incorporate a fun wallpaper for an accent wall. I decided on this print from Hygge & West because I liked its design and scale. From there, I chose the kitchen sink, backsplash and tile. I was actually browsing the Wayfair site and came across a lot of stuff I really liked, including this farmhouse sink, fun printed backsplash and hexagon tile. I picture this loft having a small kitchen, so I think all of these colors and finishes would flow very nicely together. Also, how about this rug?! For starters, I’m pretty much a fan of every product that McGee & Co. carries. When I saw this jute rug, I knew it would be perfect for this design. It’s simple, neutral and has great texture!

On that note, I used a few tips when creating this small kitchen space. For starters, you’re working with a small space, so always keep that in mind. When working in these types of spaces, you can get away with using bold colors, wallpaper and fabric. In this design, I would use the wallpaper on an accent wall where the eating nook is. I found a fun bold pattern by Rebecca Atwood for the pillows and roman shades. Again, because its a small area, you want to make sure all finishes used are cohesive and work well together. In my example, I focused on grey, black and ivory as my main color palette and made sure I stayed consistent throughout the design. Overall, I think a small kitchen space needs warmth and texture, which was my goal when creating this space. What do you guys think?!
