And the Golden Globe goes to ~ White Kitchens {in Movies}

The White Kitchen has been all the rage for a few years, and even with designers trying to 'Move On' the White Kitchen lives on. I know that are going to have to drag The White kitchen out of magazines and our lives kicking and screaming..

Big Blockbuster Movies have promoted this design phenomenon and working in Manhattan proximity very close to the Hamptons made me and many other designers I am sure target for this question...

"I don't know if you know what I talking about, but I want the same kitchen as in the movie Something Gotta Give. You know the one? The one with Jack Nicholson?" 

Yes, I do... oh yes, I know it well. I must have designed at least two dozen irregardless of the size, shape and budget of kitchen! I must admit, I still love this style and was fortunate to have worked with two of the three companies that without doubt do The White Kitchen the best in the industry.
So without further ado..

Here are the Nominees for The White Kitchen In Movies ~

Somethings Gotta Give
{Starring inset doors, glazed upper cabinets, SubZero refrigerator and dual islands}

Sex In The City 2 {Charlottes' Kitchen}
{Starring overlay doors, subway tiles, Wolf Range and Corian countertops}

Father Of The Bride
{Starring wood countertops, pot rack and mullioned glazed cabinets}

He's Not That Into You
{Starring wall mounted brass faucet, brass monkey lip pulls, and tiled countertops}

The Holiday

Life As We Know It
{Starring wall oven & microwave combo, stainless steel backsplash and prep sink in island}

The Break Up

And the winner is.....(drum roll).... Father of the Bride, for authenticity and charm!
