Designer Nora Voon of Noda Designs explains how she created a dream kitchen for her client using a mix of materials and styles from different time periods. See the open-concept space and discover the smart storage solutions within.

Nora went for a minimalist look with clean lines for a light and open feel. A large island with a 20-millimeter countertop and an added wood butcher block sits in the center of the kitchen. Open shelving is used to display everyday items while a pantry with tons of storage space helps tuck away anything and everything. The palette is kept neutral, except for a pop of red on the backsplash, which adds a dose of warmth to the overall design.
