The main dining room in this home is placed between the dropped living room and the kitchen. This traditional gathering point becomes the heart of the home with natural wood tones and exposed beams, allowing for dinner guests to have a clear view of the ground floor.
This modern Tuscan-style kitchen pays homage to the traditional details associated with the design through its use of color, architecture and accessories. Wood rafters help enclose the kitchen, while exposing the cathedral ceilings and intricate, artistic murals along the walls and ceilings. Simple wrought iron fixtures showcase Old World appeal with a contemporary edge. With massive wooden beams, terra-cotta tiles from Italy and hand-painted frescoes of Italian vineyards — this kitchen cooks up Italian flavor from floor to ceiling. But it's the bread warmer and wine cellar that stores up to 1,800 bottles that make this an Italian paradise. Appliances include two Miele dishwashers, a vegetable steamer, a built-in espresso machine and a five-burner Thermador stove.
Across from the kitchen, this cute breakfast area is defined by salvaged wood beams on the ceiling. An interesting mix of furniture styles gives the space an eclectic feel, and an unusual chandelier serves as a focal point.
