Not a kitchen==but would make a nice design for one, I think. AP: interior design of 12 coffeeshops around the world. This one (with the world map) is my favorite :) None of them really look cozy enough, but there's some cool design/ideas
This book cover shows excellent figure ground/negative space. The contours formed by the position of the fox serve as the shape of a boy, I'm assuming "Peter." This empty space also creates a wonderful focal point for the book title to nestle into.
