After moving to Washington State from California we wanted a bright kitchen. The light coastal colors would contrast those dark Northwest days. Karla at CliqStudios helped us to design our space with maximizing storage in mind. We put cabinets to the ceiling and created banquet seating with storage below. The bottom cabinets are taupe and the upper cabinets are a cool white, creating a subtle contrast. We chose 36x18 tiles for the countertops to continue a casual feel throughout the space.
