Kitchen porch by Nancy Pearson
Nancy Pearson Ltd., 215 East 68th Street, Suite 12U, New York, NY 10065; 212/213-3133, nancypearsonltd.com
Nancy Pearson wanted something unexpected for the kitchen porch, so instead of lanterns, she opted for new but classic Visual Comfort fixtures to echo the lattice windows. She contrasted the formality of topiary with the informality of accents in island colors. The coffee table's top is taken from a cross-section of a tropical tree.
