When it comes to accessorizing, barstools are one element that have the potential to make a huge statement.

Modern and sleek, these stools create stunning contrast in the bar.
We love the look of lucite, especially under a smaller bar, because it blends right in, almost fading away to create continuity.

Traditional stools are always a great choice,

but we’re partial to something a little funkier — like these chrome and lucite seats.

A shot of industrial chic is always cool, especially when paired with the perfect pendant.

A two-sided bar is super fab, and luscious white leather ups the ante.

We’re busy finding the perfect stool for the Beaufort house. If money were no object, we choose you, one-of-a-kind, 1st Dibs pieces, for your incredible blend of metal, cloth and lucite.

  9. Accessorizing the Kitchen takes a special hand and a lot of talent!
    You have shown us perfection….as you always do!…
    So many go overboard with “stuff” on every inch of the counters. While Others create a sterile environment.
    All of your images have it right!

    Just when I think there can’t be any more beautiful kitchens left to be blogged about, you go and find a whole new bunch! These are lovely and great idea focusing on the island seating. With three kids, it’s the most used seating area in our house!

  17. Love that you always pick white!

  18. I love all the kitchen but my favorite thing is the bar stools. Would love to be able to snatch those up!! Thanks for the post!

  19. MMmmm, that 3rd kitchen with the warm greys is my favourite! I love bar stools, they really define the space. What a beautiful post, thanks for the morning pick me up, ladies!

  20. Beautiful kitchen inspiration and barstools. Good luck finding the perfect barstool!!


  21. There are some great bar examples but I loved so much about a couple of these kitchens, they’re in my “favorite Kitchens” file.

  22. I enjoyed seeing in many of photos the look of double glass door cabinets show casing some beautiful bowls, or glasses. I had one installed in my last house and need to do it again in my present home. I also loved all the pendant lights in each photo.

  23. Beautiful Kitchens! We are in the process of updating so the photos are a big help. Love the aluminium stools.
