Bring Natural Hues Indoors

"The existing kitchen had no warmth or color and very limited workspace. To add space, I removed a wall that separated the kitchen from a hall/walkway. I then created a multilevel island, which housed the ovens at one end, a work counter with a prep sink in the middle and a raised table on the opposite end for seating. The warm colors I chose to work with were inspired by the natural tones reflecting into the house from the outdoors.


"I used a warm honey stain with a caramel glaze on maple for the cabinetry. Desert Amarillo honed granite balanced the neutral landscape while the Oyster Silestone for the tabletop worked to bring inside the green of the gardens. The accent pieces (including the deco tile inlay on the backsplash and hood and the knobs and pulls) were of a patina finish. The oak plank flooring completes the look for a kitchen that brings the colors and feeling of the outdoors indoors."
