I have photographed and styled scores of kitchens for firms like Sub-Zero, KitchenAid and Wood-Mode. Here are the latest trends for kitchen styling in magazines.
My Ten Best Kitchen Styling Tips
Keep it simple. In these times, less is more. Select a color palette for the accents, go for a tone on tone look. Prop with bigger scaled items than normal; maybe using a big open cookbook for scale. Be constant. Do not have props move about in the different photos. Keep it real. Keep it natural. Go farm to kitchen! Do not set the table or counter; it might feel too stuffy. Leave some empty areas and show some negative space. Use vertical objects to break strong horizontals lines. Be clean and tidy.
