It should come as no surprise that mega blogger turned author turned Target homeware designer Joy Cho would have an absolutely gorgeous studio, but I’m especially smitten with her “grown-up Candyland” kitchenette. Designed in collaboration with L.A. style whiz Emily Henderson back in 2013, the sweet but surprisingly simple space features standard IKEA cabinets decked out in Anthropologie knobs. The kitchenette is refined even further with a pastel SMEG fridge, artisanal kitchenware from Willful (previously Wind & Willow), an Eames hang-it-all by the door and a charming Joel Penkman donut print, not to mention a smattering of creative DIY projects, from a washi tape striped toe-kick to dip-dyed mason jars. Open shelves additionally provide the perfect display for an impossibly pretty array of items, from pink tea canisters to cans of coconut water. Joy even has an impeccable mint coloured dustpan to match her fridge, which is proof that even the tiniest detail can be mindful of design.
