Step into the classic suburban kitchen found in this home and instantly feel inspired—to cook, bake, and even to decorate your own kitchen! The owner, a fine arts graduate and homemaking expert, teaches cooking and presentation classes and doles out homekeeping tips.

The design inspiration for the whole house is best defined in crisp white and classic silhouettes. The owner's preference came in perfect timing especially since she needed a breath of fresh air. From a rustic house defined by wood, the present home highlights while, airy interiors, and sunlight streaming in.

The center stage of the four-bedroom abode? The lovely kitchen – with its blue and crisp white color motif which gives the space a clean look. Natural light bathes the kitchen from the majestic floor-to-ceiling windows. Decorated with touches of whimsy and a distinct homey “New England” Connecticut 60s feel, the kitchen is definitely a design inspiration. Pots and pans are organized on a round metal display while glass jars and containers line up the open shelves. A statuette of a pig in a chef’s ensemble stands on the kitchen island, guarding baking implements, pots and pans, and the stove. A miniature chalkboard stands handy for reminders, recipes, menu for the day or even an inspirational quote. Even the china cabinet, in reality only a simple white shelf, becomes as striking as the rest of the room, with dainty white cups, plates, and teapots displayed artistically.

Some say that the kitchen is the heart of the home and with a charming kitchen such as this, the home was definitely built with a lot of heart.
