A sunflower yellow galley kitchen thrives on its cottage style and tiny size.
In an old house in New York City, a sunflower yellow cottage kitchen, not much bigger than a closet, was skillfully renovated by a husband and wife design team.

A trio of upper cabinets on the range wall also were painted white to keep things bright. The center cabinet has an interesting vintage 3/3 circular glass cabinet door, which is the kitchen’s focal point. Below the two main cabinets are scrolling brackets that conceal task lights. Clues to the update by Anne Fairfax and Richard Sammons include the apron-front sink mounted under mahogany counters with a pendant overhead. There’s a Rohl bridge faucet with porcelain lever handles and offset deck unions. The slim 24” dual-fuel Aga Companion cooker with its vertical tile range guard adds some practical bling, amplified by English antiques pushed up against the back of the sink sink cabinet.
