A modern approach to decorating smaller kitchens uses two easy tones on the eyes and maximizes limited natural light. The white countertops and blue-ish gray cabinetry add a sleek finish to the space.

Instead of going for the traditional wall photos, she hung up some potted plants for a touch of greenery the light-toned kitchen needed. No handles or knobs on the cabinets and drawers add a modern touch to the space.

Lighter wood was used on the flooring and cabinets to create symmetry in the space. Carly also added black, nordic-styled bar stools that add texture to the area. She also placed comfy white cushions for extra comfort during long catch-up sessions with friends when pre-gaming before heading out.
