Despite its pared-back vibe, there's a whole lot to love about this trendy kitchen designed by Natalie Myers. One of the great joys of working with a minimalist aesthetic is that every small bit of decor you incorporate into a room will make a strong statement — so it's perfect for those of us who are itching to showcase our favorite items. Here, for instance, an all-white color palette lets the delicate gold hardware shine more brightly by contrast, while natural wood shelving adds a dose of warmth to those cool white walls. A pair of stools match the wood flooring and help define the eating area, which is further solidified by the thoughtfully-placed twin pendant lights above the countertop. But you know we're pining for that beautiful blue backsplash most of all, of course. Despite its small size, those tiles infuse a ton of character on to a tiny canvas thanks to the kitchen's overall simplicity.
