Marisa Tomei’s kitchen is a perfect example of simple yet eclectic design. The walls are covered from top to bottom in white subway tile, with white shaker cabinets and open shelving. It’s a small space, and the light colored materials give it a more open feel. The open shelving is another great way to give the illusion of more space.

Key takeaway: for a small kitchen, you can give the illusion of more space by using as many light-colored materials as possible. Also, make use of natural light! Lastly, open shelving presents the illusion of an open concept space, and gives you additional storage space for dishware.

6. Ellen Pompao’s Kitchen

Architectural Digest

Ellen Pompao’s kitchen is a rustic dream. With distressed wood, vintage-style appliances and rustic brick flooring, this space has timeless old-world style. The designer opted not to include upper cabinets, instead leaving room for decor on the walls and a dramatic backsplash.

Key takeaway: for a large kitchen space, leaving out upper cabinets presents the opportunity for more decor and/or a stunning accent wall. An accent wall can be anything from a different colored wall to an entire wall of tile or stone. Hanging pots and pans is another functional way to cover wall space.

7. Keri Russell’s Kitchen

Kitchen design features brown shaker cabinets, glass front upper cabinets, white countertops and backsplash, and open shelving.


Keri Russell’s kitchen is simple, but it makes a huge statement. This space features dark chocolate brown shaker cabinets, glass front upper cabinets, white countertops and backsplash, and open shelving. Russell’s kitchen space is the perfect balance between light and dark materials, with the open shelving serving as a convenient storage nook for recipe books.

Key takeaway: A good balance between dark and light materials within a kitchen space creates a beautiful edgy look. Open shelving gives the opportunity to add more of your own touch to a space, whether you want to use shelves for functional storage or decor. Glass paneled cabinets are a great way to break up the look of the cabinetry, and adding frosted glass (like above) means that you won’t be able to see the items inside.
