It was love at first sight when I saw Toronto stylist Sasha Seymour's kitchen - the perfect blend of timeless classics - white subway tile, carrera marble and herringbone wood floor, with unexpected twists - a sculptural chandelier from the 1970s, brass hardware (vs. the traditional chrome and stainless steel) and of course, the pièce de résistance - a counter height fireplace. The combination of all these elements was just so interesting and unique but still classic enough to be enduring. Flooded with light from the skylight above, the overall feeling is so fresh. This space proves that classic all white can be anything but boring - and also, that perhaps every kitchen needs a fireplace.
