Do you remember this kitchen featured in Canadian House and Home? It has been my favourite for years!

Who knew it was Tommy Smythe's kitchen? - which makes perfect sense as I have become a fan of him on Sarah's House. His humour is what I look forward to along with his design aesthetic. Come on HGTV...when is Tommy going to have his own show????
The black tiled floor with the grey marble subway tile backsplash is where this wonderful kitchen begins for me.
Not sure I would do a stainless counter, but it looks fab! I also like plenty of clean wooden spoons by my stove.
Next, the black lower cabinets and the white uppers is a great way to anchor the room, yet lighten and balance it with the white. Tommy, didn't you say you hated the bow and arrow fridge handles???
I love the French feeling this kitchen gives you - the bentwood/rattan cafe chairs with small, honeyed pine table, french black doors and a huge lantern light.
Remember this spread for Canadian House & Home of Tommy's bedroom? - above and below all photographed by Michael Graydon.
Love the black velvet cushions and I am always a sucker for persian rugs. As an avid reader, I also admire the idea of placing a huge lamp on the bedside table.
Oh - and there's the another one - my guess is it's the same one - but a beautiful vignette nonetheless.
Very classic like Ralph Lauren and Thomas O'Brien, yet Tommy has a style very much his own.
I love the whack of red stripes in this otherwise traditional space. Congrats Tommy, on your success and I look forward to seeing more Tommy Smythe Designs!
