Kitchens should be glamorous I say! You can do this by adding surprise elements for example in my own pad I have opted for suede 30s bar stools flanking a central island withÂ an oversized table light - to me this feels very boutique hotelish at the same time harmonizing the kitchen with the rest of the room. Open shelves are also wonderful for adding tons more storage and at the same time showing your taste to the rest of the world. Plus you don't have to have a big kitchen to add glamour in fact one of the smallest kitchens I have ever seen was in NY and it was beyond fabulous (see below). Wallpaper flanks the painted black cabinets so that everything merges seamlessly. Every inch of storage space has been used even above the cupboards and the effect was dazzling.

Kelly Wearstler's kitchen is the kitchen of my dreams. A strict colour palette and clean, graphic lines are glamorous, swanky and just shout old Hollywood. Its traditional but its paired with a modern vibe, its theatrical but not kitsch. I love it! And I so so so want to look like Kelly!
