It's like a galley kitchen tucked inside another kitchen - the terducken of kitchens.

What a beautiful room.

While the low bench under the art is fine, it seems too low to be functional as a sideboard. Maybe a taller piece with some storage (perhaps in white)? You could set a bright object or two on top of that and bring a lot of color into the room.

Maybe adding two brightly colored chairs on either end of the table?

The fireplace looks gorgeous to me. I think a marble mantle and the shelves would look great.

I love cold fruit soups, especially in the summer.

Maybe a fireplace screen? I think a solid one might at least help.

Capers on top help a lot too.

I think they would look great framed out in individual frames on a wall.

They're going to look awesome.

If you are going to keep your cabinets the wood, I think maybe painting the bricks something other than white might work better. Depending on what you're doing in the room, you could paint them a deep cream, or even black.

I always buy it for home brewing, but when I am just buying a cup on the street, I get what I get.

Gorgeous. I wonder whether it's compatible with the iPhone.

I stayed there a few years ago and wondered about that fantastic tree shaped table, but I was never able to discover where it was from.

It seems silly at that price point and with that aesthetic not to have a place for peripherals.
