This was a small kitchen in a remodeled cottage. The designer had made great use of the limited space. I wanted to show the energy and flow of the design.  

The kitchen was basically a corridor which was impossible to light and would have been rather sterile despite the styling of the appliances, flowers and fruit bowls. I chose to place the homeowner’s dog near the visual center of the image to soften the perception of the space.
