A harmonious cooking environment is as much about what you see when you look up as it is about the task at hand. Converting a once oversized dining room in our 2022 Whole Home in Atlanta, designer Whittney Parkinson let floor-to-ceiling windows lead the way. “I didn’t want to obstruct that view, I wanted to embrace it instead. All the elements of this kitchen were based on alignment with this window,” she says. Mirrored glass tiles above the backsplash reflect daylight, not people. To maximize space and storage, she created a refrigeration wall on the left and replicated the look with closed storage on the right. Two sitting areas, at the island and at the breakfast table, provide enough space for a large family to spread out, while an adjoining wine niche, scullery and pantry -eating make this space ready to entertain.
