If I had to categorize where I fall on the design style spectrum, I’d say somewhere between eclectic collector and modern glam (though I love a little modern farmhouse thrown into the mix for good measure). So to declare that this kitchen located in Valencia, Spain, and owned by interior designer/furniture store owner Adela makes me incredibly happy comes as a bit of a personal surprise.
Maybe it’s the fact that it reminds me a bit of my grandmother’s kitchen in Puerto Rico that I spent nearly every summer of my childhood in, or perhaps it’s all the little practical yet pretty moments it shares. Either way, it’s such a great space, and I’m going to break down three reasons why it works.
The kitchen isn’t usually the first spot you think to put up decorative wall coverings, but that doesn’t mean it shouldn’t be. Even just a hint of pattern, like the vintage-looking floral over Adela’s cabinetry, adds instant charm (and looks like it could have been there for decades…in fact, I’m not entirely sure it hasn’t been!).
