An Understated, Elegant Kitchen

Text by Ann Zimmerman / Photography by Scot Zimmerman

The traditional kitchens of Belgium inspired this remodel to remind the homeowners of a beloved vacation destination.

Mourning the end of a trip is symptomatic of a fantastic vacation, but how about making that favorite place the muse for reinventing one’s own home? It was the comfort a family found in Belgian homes that inspired the combination of sleek efficiency, timeless charm, and traditional practicality in their new kitchen design. Enthusiasm for Belgian design is spiking, as many designers are attracted to its understated yet functional elegance.
