When homeowners in this L. A. kitchen needed to redo their space, they called on Michael Armani Studios for some fresh ideas — and fresh and fun is what they now have in this renovated “heart of the home.” From shining oak floors to pristine crown molding, this predominantly white kitchen has a bright look, enhanced by cherry wood on chairs and an Art Deco-influenced glass and china cabinet. If the kitchen is the heart of the home, the center eat-in island is the heart of the kitchen: its white marble top provides ample room for both food prep and serving, with abundant cabinet and drawer space for utensils, pots and pans, or mixing bowls. A separate sink facing the island is mere steps away for easy cleanup — with a sleek stainless steel dishwasher for the heavy jobs.

Among the neutrals, the kitchen also has its fun and colorful side: humorous art and sculpture ornament above the sink provide a smile, while geometric-patterned shades pick up the neutral hues of sand and cream, add a touch of orange, and pop under subtle recessed lighting. Leaded glass adds a touch of class to a white kitchen door, and a collection of glass bottles in rainbow shades is a nice accent atop the china cabinet. Practical touches make this kitchen a true workspace: shelves to hold cookbooks, easy-clean countertops, a six-burner stove. And when a formal dinner is done, the stacked washer-dryer unit tucked into one end makes washing up those table linens a snap. All in all, the kitchen is practical, workable, and cheerful — filled with lots of light and just the right amount of fun.
