The open floor plan of this minimalist home is calm and comfortable.

A floating blue buffet adds a touch of color and maintains the airy quality of the space.
Rich brown cabinets with light brown panels pair with creamy walls and columns for a stunning look in the Mediterranean-style chef's kitchen. A beautiful range hood and the extravagant coffered ceiling coordinate with the cabinetry, giving the space a sense of cohesion.
“Our client had the fantastic idea to use rolling tool cabinets in her kitchen,” says architect Nick Pancheau. “We designed a simple kitchen island combining seating and storage in a single movable piece. We selected a lime-green finish to match the fritted glass lamp shades made by the client; a subtle dark-green soapstone countertop rests atop the cabinets.”
Lighted upper cabinets hold inset resin panels, a distinctive touch in this sleek and clean-lined kitchen. Charcoal tile continues up the backsplash and behind a slim, stainless steel hood, and appliances are built into pale gray cabinetry. Caesarstone quartz in white and gray adds polish that is balanced by industrial-style barstools and wood floors.
This stunning kitchen features gold cone-shaped pendant lights that illuminate the black marble kitchen island and matching gold commercial-style faucet. Sleek forest green cabinets add an eye-catching color accent, while stainless steel appliances finish off the look of the space.
With seating for eight, the large dining table in the middle of this newly remodeled kitchen gives the homeowners a great space to entertain, while the combination of a farmhouse table and wrought iron chairs adds visual interest to the space.

A subway tile backsplash polishes off the space, finishing out the design.
