Soft Kitchen Design

Watery accents, curvaceous glass and an oversized floral wallpaper add femininity to an angular kitchen.

"By choosing a neutral palette for the fixed kitchen elements, you have great flexibility to change the room's mood if the urge strikes — and it always does with me," says designer Sarah Richardson, host of HGTV's Sarah's House and Sarah's Cottage. Here, dark wood mixes with light 2' x 2' travertine tile, a Botticino marble mosaic tile backsplash, pretty light fixtures and a shiny countertop. "People think stainless steel counters will be too cold, but I love them — I cook every night and they're easy to clean."
