This kitchen receives a significant burst of color from built-in seating and one piece of art, but we would still call it a white kitchen.
Likewise, the timber stools and matching tone of this waterfall counter around the island stick out against this sea of white.
Mid-century modern: A blank slate provides special furniture a chance to stand out. Here we’ve got vintage Eames shell chairs, an oval Saarinen tulip dining table and Caravaggio P4 pendants grabbing each of the attention.

Scandinavian modern: This European style emphasizes materials through simplicity. This white kitchen/dining area is infused with warmth from the wood flooring, table and walls. Interesting shapes come from the Panton S seats and the floor lamp.
Blonde flooring and a mixture of new and old give this kitchen Scandinavian flair.

Mod-ish: Between the white marble waterfall counter tops, white Cherner stools, white cabinets and white walls, this kitchen is about as white as it gets. The dark wood flooring create continuity between the kitchen and the other regions in the area.
