Kitchen Design Inspired by Nature

The kitchen is a place where we spend so much time, whether brewing a cup of coffee, whipping up breakfast or savoring dinner with friends.

In honor of the time we spend in the kitchen, we wanted to highlight some design inspiration we recently uncovered via interior designer Elisabeth Heier.

What caught our attention most with Elisabeth is her clean aesthetic.

Her approach to design is that which exudes the laid-back beach lifestyle in a simple yet elegant way.
