Favorite room of the week!

This Parisian bistro-inspired kitchen in Montreal designed by Philippe Côté is absolutely chic! The vibrant jewel-toned blue cabinetry with brass hardware instantly evokes a cheery and upbeat vibe. Meanwhile, the hand-printed Moroccan tiles, rosewood-look open shelving and a timeless herringbone-tiled backsplash that extends to the ceiling add visual interest to the space. The custom hammered-brass vent on the other hand exudes a touch of glam and character. I like how the designer thoughtfully incorporated a band of faux rosewood to frame the gas range and panelled the fridge in rosewood-look veneer to mimic the open shelves for a sense of cohesiveness and luxury. Not only the full-height glass doors that leads to the backyard let in an abundance of light, it creates a sense of openness, making the small kitchen feel larger. Needless to say, I am truly inspired by this fresh and layered French style, casual bistro kitchen. What about you, my lovelies? Are you drawn to this beautiful kitchen as well? I would love to hear your thoughts!

  1. This is one GREAT kitchen. Especially love the doors and the fact they go all the way up to the ceiling Fantastic.

  2. Do you have the color name for that blue? I tried to match a friend's kitchen blue, and I ended up with a deep purple! I have a lot of natural light in my kitchen and I think that's what made the difference.

  3. where are the wall tiles from?
