Interior Design — Small & Fun Urban Farmhouse Kitchen Design

On http://houseandhome.com/tv, designer Olivia Botrie of Barbara Purdy Design works some magic to create her own “urban farmhouse” kitchen, complete with smoky grey cabinetry and a recycled leather banquette. See why Olivia swapped the position of the door and window, bucked the open concept trend with the adjoining dining room and how she compensates for an uneven floor.

furniture kitchen design ideas


  1. Microwave oven is mounted way to high. It's easiest (and safest) to use when you can slide hot food out and land it right on the counter.

  2. The lady seems so bubbly and bright but the kitchen seems so bleak and plain to me.

  3. Nice kitchen, but who could deal with that voice…geez

  4. I don't like the choice of picture hanged in the back splash but overall i loved her design. She also did the house&home a contemporary kitchen that can stand the test of time. It's my favorite that i'm building my ground floor and kitchen because I was inspired by it.

  5. 14×11 is a small kitchen? Wot? That's an entire bed room. Has no one ever seen a galley kitchen that was popular in the mid century?

  6. I can't watch her she seem a little strange .. like she needs meds… please don't show her again ugggh

  7. Ha! My boyfriend's taste is retro futuristic, sorta "2001: A Space Odyssey" vibe. He also wants a conversation pit in our future home.

  8. Her voice and manner of speaking stresses me out. lol

  9. Alexander Novoselov

    Design is really great! But she is speak too slowly 🙂

  10. Cute floor tile design. Nice kitchen all around.

  11. o.k., SLOW DOWN! This is not a race but a kitchen tour!

  12. The way she talks is so irritating.

  13. She sounds anxious… why in a hurry? 😊

  14. Kathleen Gustafson

    You have so many good ideas, the wall with the fridge, so much storage, no dead space in the corner

  15. Retro futuristic AKA retrofuturism describes a futuristic design style that was popular in the mid 20th century! Think, houses that look like softly curved spaceships. The Saarinen dining table, arguably, fits that aesthetic.

  16. aaah i love the design choices olivia always makes!!!
    would be nice if she had her own channel- playlist etc 🙂

  17. Danielle Carpenter

    Omg! I love your space I am having the exact same dilemma right now with our 1913 house!!

  18. hahaha retro futuristic i loved it

  19. The design is great, but I feel nervous while listening to her. Is she in a hurry,

  20. "Retro futuristic" makes no sense, but "urban farmhouse" is a thing? 😛

  21. The writing on the pillow say "merde"? Did not know cussing was considered stylish. Could be offensive to people who speak french.

  22. You talk fast and hard. 🌵🌵🌵

  23. Lol I think I know what her husband meant by "retro futuristic"

  24. I loved this design– thought the pillow saying "merde" was pretty funny as well!

  25. I want to see the rest if the house please

  26. "We eat 99% of the time in the kitchen…" You see that's why you should have taken down the wall! The cabinets would have been easily installed on the other side, plus more under a bar counter! But i really like the floor! Genius!

  27. Retro futuristic I think it's exactly what you have done! Congratulations! It looks amazing!

  28. It would definitely get me depressed after 2 days in that kitchen with all that gray hyrrk. Y you people want to be so trendy that you forget what ugly is. It like the Emperor's New Clothes but in deco

  29. I absolutely love your kitchen – especially the elegant design on the floor.   The neutral colours will stand the test of time.  Well done.

  30. Aaa didn't quite hit the mark for me

  31. ME-Tube Your Space!

    It looked much, much better.  Nice indeed and good that the designer decided not to tear down the walls.
