Olga Tcherednikova's rendering of a sunny citrus-hued kitchen was created for a friend, and the layout illustrates a stellar way to make a small space seem expansive.

Olga Tcherednikova designed the kitchen to be whimsical, just like her friend. Incorporating her friend's favorite color of orange into the wall and floor, Olga Tcherednikova chose sleek cabinetry and appliances with a low profile. A curved bar runs the length of the opposite wall, saving space while adding a comfortable spot for guests to sit while the cook is at work.
