Designer Kathleen Navarra granted the homeowners' wishes of a light, airy kitchen with crisp white cabinetry and a cerused oak island topped with marble while weaving in her trademark use of color. Navarra turned to rich chocolate tones for the grasscloth wallcovering, hardwood floor and La Cornue oven and hood and painted the ceiling with a sky blue lacquer to add depth to the San Francisco Decorator Showcase 2015 kitchen.
The luxurious kitchen pairs chocolate brown perimeter cabinets with a crisp white island for striking contrast. Two different island countertop surfaces create additional interest, and sleek, round pendant lights complete the high-end look.
This single vanity bathroom features a neutral countertop paired with a wooden rectangular sink and medium grain wood cabinets. A curved wall covered in chocolate square tiles acts as a backsplash, while a doorway leads to a separate glass enclosed shower and toilet area.

This family room showcases an oversized built-in bookcase, which also serves as a media cabinet. Its chocolate brown hue coordinates with the furnishings, giving the space a custom look. A wall of windows floods the room with natural light.
In this glam kitchen, custom features abound, including a spacious built-in wine cooler and a textured glass backsplash. Glass-front cabinets put drinkware on display, and an elevated glass countertop on the island gives the space an overall modern feel. A rich chocolate brown in the inset ceiling warms and balances the room.
Fresh pink patterned drapery, a stunning wool Moroccan area rug and a modernized mantel make this living room a happy and elegant conversation space. Originally a colonial style mantel, the new look was achieved with drywall and beautiful bright white plaster, which reflects natural light into the room and creates a fresh and modern feel. Designers emphasized the area with a chocolate brown accent wall above. Flanking the mantel with matching cabinets brings balance and adds storage.
