European Old World Kitchens

There is nothing quite as beautiful as European old world hand crafted cabinetry.
A trip through European Kitchen Design blog takes you through some of the most beautiful kitchens.

If you are looking for new ideas and interested in thinking outside the box, consider bending the tradition on American designed kitchens.

Here are a few photos for your enjoyment. Work displayed below as shown at Ateliers-Jean-Daniel.com
Notice the extraordinary design details showing the individual cases built into the walls and masonry, the absence of “wall to wall” cabinetry Americans are so accustomed to. A great departure from what is in fashion in the states: standard overlay doors and exposed hinges. Although what I would not be able to do with out is more drawers. There seems to be so few drawers in these designs.

Favorite details: The arched and plaster openings. Open shelves in place of wall cabinets.

If this was in America, I guarantee there would be a corner base lazy susan and the walls would be filled with cabinets, end to end. This is so much more charming. The exposed beams, the plaster hood. Ahhh!

Exposed hinges and standard overlay doors. Trey chic in this setting.


Textures, color, lack of uniformity. So beautiful.
