David Friedlander’s and Jacqueline Schmidt’s 700 square meter Brooklyn apartment is full of chic ideas and stylish pieces, as well as a surprisingly spacious pantry. The architect David Bucovy transformed a traditional kitchen into a minimalist galley design that looks harmonious and peaceful. The backsplash and countertop are made of marble and the kitchen cabinets are made from Ikea’s Applåd cabinets. There is a lot of white which is characteristic of the minimalist style and which also makes this small kitchen look bigger. I love wooden bowls, marble dishes, and porcelain trays with wooden lids – they bring zen to the room and make every meal a ritual.
