Spotted and admired: a white Georgian kitchen in Hampshire, UK; we're loving the understated minimalist take on the traditional English kitchen. Even staunch modernists will find appeal in the subtle detailing: the subway tile backsplash; the pale gray accent colors, the cream Aga. Get the look with the following elements.
