How do you design a clean and bright kitchen that looks far larger than its footprint? Designer Ingrid Oomen tells all in her classic bistro-style space. Ingrid and her husband Asad Wali wanted to display their vast wine collection, so they planned the kitchen around a wall of glass wine cabinets. A visit to Italy inspired them to use Carrara marble throughout, and to pair crisp white surfaces with a subway tile backsplash, bold black doors to the yard and industrial-chic schoolhouse pendants.

See more photos of this kitchen in our October 2011 issue, and tour her gorgeous country home in Caledon, Ont.
