Practically everywhere across the country, summer weather arrived early with temperate breezes and balmy temperatures. So naturally, we’re already dreaming of summer evenings spent entertaining outdoors—the kind where friends and family gather on porches and in backyards to share in easy conversation and delicious summer foods.
To get you even more excited for the season (not that you need pushing), we’ve put together a Pinterest board of our favorite kitchen designs for summer entertaining. From airy layouts to open ceilings, we hope these images inspire you to think differently about your own kitchen.
And after you browse the images, enter Cultivate.com’s newly launched Pinterest contest, which challenges you to design a Pinterest board with images that illustrate your dream kitchen. Prizes include an All Clad D5 10-piece set (value $1,450), Williams-Sonoma gift cards, and a feature on Cultivate.com. Click here for instructions and rules.
The summery colors and fun patterns in this kitchen will have guests in the summer mindset all year long.
As if one kitchen for entertaining isn’t enough, this South Carolina home has a separate cook space completely dedicated to gathering outdoors.
With swinging floor-to-ceiling glass doors, this warm, modern kitchen lets guests be cozy and intimate behind closed doors in cold months and then warm and joyful, with doors wide open, in warmer months.

About the author: Sarah Latta, editor of Cultivate.com, Williams-Sonoma’s website on kitchen design and inspiration, admittedly thinks about the look of her kitchen just as much as she does the food that gets cooked in it. And while she can practically touch both walls of her San Francisco kitchen (at the same time), it doesn’t stop her from dreaming of wide prep counters and an ultra-organized spice cabinet. Having worked as an editor at various shelter magazines, home design is her sweet spot—and kitchens, her passion.
