    The kitchen is an ode to glamour. Stark white cabinetry is a nice contrast to the silver gray walls carried over from the living room. And even more beauty can be found in the details. Gold hardware on the cabinetry and in fixtures like the faucet add a special touch. For a metallic mix, overhead lighting in silver brings an unexpected industrial touch to this picture-perfect space for cooking and enjoying a quick bite.

    This home's final room may be one of our favorites - a laundry room with some serious style. De Chiara conquered this space herself, enveloping it in Cole & Son's Nuvole wallpaper. The effect is stunning and so original for a laundry room. It's the final note in a New England home that has a refreshing take on traditional style.
