This kitchen has lots of light-bouncing surfaces – stainless cabinets and tile that looks like natural abalone. If it is, it cost more than the rest of the kitchen combined! Maybe it’s iridescent glass – still a pretty penny! Not sure how either would fare as a counter-top – especially the grout lines… but visually it’s beautiful.
Of course, it would have to be, since this kitchen co-stars with Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt in Mr & Mrs Smith (2005). Like them, it’s beautiful, cool, maybe even a bit cold and somewhat impractical… for cooking.
Take that sliver of a sink in the foreground! Very limited in what it could be used for. Looks like the back counter is black marble – chic but far more porous than granite.
Behind the scenes, this kitchen has a secret (again, like it’s co-stars!). The lower oven doesn’t bake – it stores weapons! Now that’s practical!
What else could a kitchen hide? Actually, hidden gadgets really are becoming a reality! No-hands garbage areas, table tops that appear seemingly out of nowhere, refrigerator doors and drawers that completely blend with cabinets. What if you could make the kitchen look like any room you love – a library, a garden room, a sanctuary – these days all it takes is your imagination and a great designer!
