Custom Kitchens: Taste of Nature

Opening the wall between the kitchen and foyer was the first step in centering this home’s focus on the kitchen. Open shelving took the place of a wall, displaying ceramic pieces from both sides. The designers worked to keep elements authentic with an environmental feel, emphasizing a very natural texture for this mountain vacation home. To bring in simple, modern lines, industrial touches were added, including wire supports for the suspended shelves, an exposed ventilation duct for the range hood and long wrought iron metal cabinetry hardware. The solid maple slab kitchen cabinetry doors are painted gray with a charcoal glaze. The walnut floors create the perfect backdrop for the kitchen to shine.

Color, Naturally
The patterned and deep red tiles—a color mirrored in some of the ceramic pieces on the shelving—add a punch of color to the gray, charcoal-glazed cabinetry. They also draw the red tones from the quartz countertops.
