Odessa kitchen combines traditional and transitional elements

The white color seen on the cabinets in this kitchen was chosen specifically by the homeowners who chose and tweaked a color so unique that it cannot be duplicated or found in stores.

These homeowners wanted a transitional kitchen design with traditional touches, and they seem to achieve just that with two-toned cabinetry.

Straying away from traditional barstool design, these homeowners decided to incorporate beige-and-white upholstered chairs in the kitchen design to pay homage to their more-modern taste.

The cheery blue color seen on the walls of this home's interior is called Topsail by Sherwin Williams-an airy, water-like choice that is sure to provide a calming background for any situation.

A pair of kitchen islands gives this area a leg up in the entertaining world as guests can either congregate around both of them and have plenty of elbow room, or one can be used as a food prep area while the other is used for socializing.

The designer and homeowners threw in some modern elements, like these industrial kitchen light fixtures, to make this kitchen less stuffy and more suitable for a young couple.

This kitchen design features a 12-foot ceiling, so the designer suggested using backlit, glass door cabinets to take advantage of that height.

Outlets are hidden away in the kitchen cabinetry, camouflaged enough to keep the flow of the kitchen intact, but easily accessible for various appliances.
