37 Bright and Beautiful Kitchens by Scouted Interior Designers
While the winter cold may linger for a while, longer days are offering a glimmer of spring around the corner, which might naturally spark an instinct to lighten up one’s surroundings. If you’re feeling like an interiors refresh might be in order, the kitchen can be a high-impact area of focus; to that end, we’ve rounded up a variety of light and bright kitchens by scouted interior designers ranging from classic white iterations to warm, rustic options to clean and modern areas of function and calm. And while the palettes might lean toward monochromatic, these designs prove that in the hands of an expert, a tightly edited selection of hues is anything but boring.
