In recent years the kitchen is no longer thought of as a purely functional space, thanks to inspired designers and adventurous clients. As a new social place, it has rather turned into a virtual extension of the living room and it’s naturally that we turn it into something both functional and beautiful at once! From oversized prints to photo frames and artworks, kitchen art is totally a thing and we are 100% for it. Here are a few inspiring examples that have caught our eye recently!
