Green Granite Countertops
Photo: Photo Design

"The client loves gardening and wanted to take advantage of the big, private backyard. We reworked the windows, added some new ones, and didn't use any window coverings. The glass-fronted cabinets add to the windows' light and airy effect.

 

"To make up for lost storage, we added rollouts, cabinet space under the island cooktop, interior organizational systems, and a row of floor-to-ceiling cabinets on the opposite wall.

 

"Other elements help to bring the outdoors in. The green granite on the countertops, the green tiles on the backsplash, and the taupe-colored maple cabinets reflect the colors of the Douglas fir trees. When you're standing in this kitchen, you feel like you're outside, like you're standing in the middle of a forest."
