People have never viewed doing laundry the same way ever since Ivana Alawi went viral for handwashing her clothes. The image of the Filipino-Moroccan actress scrubbing garbs under a glaring sun has become a cultural emblem, making everything she does worth watching.
Just recently, the 25-year-old YouTube sensation gave us another peek into her domestic lifestyle via her newly-renovated kitchen. Apparenty, another household chore she loves to do is to cook, and she wanted a pristine and compact space to do just that.
Ivana admits that the kitchen's revamp was a long time coming, and that she had a hand in freshening up its design. Ahead, we run down all of the details we absolutely adore about it.
LOOK: 6 chic details we love about Ivana Alawi's new kitchen
1. It's a minimalist space through and through.
Glossy white porcelain and silver-accented marble adorn every nook and cranny of the Alawis' cooking area. At one glance, everything appears so pristine and untouched, which is perfect for cooks who need to focus on their gastronomic tasks.
The clean-cut motif extends even to the floor, which has marble tiles that chicly mesh with the countertops and walls.
2. Some cute accent pieces add character to the space.
Perhaps the only deviations from the white and silver are some snazzy pieces that add heaps of character to everything. Take this cheeky (get it?) vase for example, which houses lush pink ferns right beside the sink.
Ivana's knife-holder is also quite the looker. It's a carved stone piece that, as the YouTuber quips, looks like a meteorite. How cool!
3. Every storage space moves compactly.
The overall minimalism of the kitchen isn't just in terms of design, but also in function. Each cabinet and drawer opens and closes smoothly with little to no effort needed. Ivana couldn't help but get giddy about how dynamic and convenient their pull-out compartment is!
Under the countertaps, the 25-year-old keeps her pots, pans and seasonings in a way that maximizes all the space while still making sure everything is easily within reach.
4. Her silverware still screams Ivana.
Even with the kitchen's more low-key revamp, Ivana still made sure that at least her silverware stays true to her. Her sleek gold utensils and cute butterfly-designed plates totally remind us of her (since, ICYDK, they're two of her favorite things)!
5. Even the refrigerator is embedded nicely into the wall.
No kitchen is complete without a refrigerator, and as expected, even that is neatly incorporated into the room. With just a pull of a door, the Alawis' fridge opens up, revealing stacks of organized produce and other goods.
Being a lover of spicy foods, Ivana, of course, had to have her go-to tupperware of red hot chilis ready!
6. She has racks packed with her favorite snacks.
Perhaps the best parts of the entire kitchen are Ivana's drawers and cabinets that are filled to the brim with all of her favorite snacks. She shares that she always keeps the goodies she grew up with in stock, ready for any Netflix nights or whenever the cravings hit.
"Bili na mga suki!" she jokingly exclaims. The YouTuber admits that since she does love to eat so much, she needs to keep her toned figure in check by working out and sipping on slimming teas, which she placed in abundance right beside her chips. LOL!
We think it's safe to say that the Ivana's kitchen is one of the most aesthetically pleasing ones we've seen. Though, don't just take our word for it. Check out her full tour below:
