Surprising yet delightful material choices elevate the style in this understated kitchen in a home in San Jose Del Cabo, Mexico.

A polished concrete floor fits perfectly in the long, open design of this space.

Leanne Ford and her brother, Steve, replaced the existing lower cabinets with a custom, metal grate-fronted system that they powder-coated bright white and topped with a solid surface Formica countertop.

Leanne covered the range hood in wood and painted it white, swapped the existing gas cooktop with a high-end stove and installed industrial-chic fixtures throughout. She kept the existing concrete floor, sealing it with a matte sealer — a decision that judge, Mike Holmes, questioned. Her response? "I honestly believe in imperfectly, perfect."
A stunning great room that needed to be visually grounded in order for it to feel at all warm and welcoming. The ceilings are 20' high and it is a very long room between the kitchen and living area. The fireplace is the major focal point by using stripes of black cement tiles mixed with wood that echoes the color of the oiled oak floors. From there it was easy to keep the major pieces neutral and to add pops of color and metallics with the accessories.
