    Not sure how I missed this post – love it (as usual). Had to look at the “GE penthouse tiny kitchen” pic you shared. Such a tiny kitchen with only room for a 30″ refrigerator and two dishwashers. Great use of adjectives – none of those would fit my kitchen. Pardon me while I find a bridge to jump off – or consider converting the living and dining rooms into additional kitchen space and search for the crafts person most capable of doing our silver leaf accents . . .

    Here’s the probable cause of my demise:
    Making a compact kitchen luxurious and beautiful may seem implausible, but it’s not at all uncommon for New Yorkers who refuse to think small. As this sparkling penthouse kitchen proves, it’s the result of some clever ideas and careful planning.

    To create the illusion of space and light, the architects designed the kitchen like a vintage jewelry box and let the idea radiate throughout the room.

    Almost everything inside the kitchen is reflective, creating a breathtaking effect. A decorative chandelier provides a sophisticated focal point the room. Light from the chandelier and accent fixtures grazes across double-barrel vaulted ceilings, custom moldings and curved wall cabinets with silver-leaf detailing. A Monogram® stainless-metallic induction cooktop and mirrored backsplash pick up the light and amplify it so that you can see a full spectrum of colors. Light also dances across marble floor tiles, accentuating its polish and texture.

    Monogram custom appliances figure prominently into the optical fantasy. A 30″ fully integrated refrigerator and wine reserve and two 18″ dishwashers blend into the background of the kitchen, integrating perfectly with the overall design scheme.

    These kitchens are so beautifully designed. My wife is similar to your husband and prefers to have a simple, cheap, functional kitchen but I’m desperate for a bold kitchen that we can be proud of. Thanks for sharing these images, I’ll definitely use them as inspiration.
    Good luck on your kitchen journey!
