I recently came across this photo of a kitchen Thomas O'brien collaborated on 
and I fell in love with the simplicity/ utilitarianism of his design.

How Fantastic would this be if you have a kitchen that you are less than thrilled with. 
Take off your cabinet doors, add a similar light fixture (IKEA) and keep the color pallet monochromatic. 
Its a simple, inexpensive fix.

An Isamu Noguchi paper lantern hangs above the table. 
The 1930s library table and chairs are by Alvar Aalto.
