A reclaimed wood post acts as a connection point for the island cooking surface and the zebra wood eating bar in this sleek kitchen. The variety of materials used adds interest to the contemporary space.
A bright dining area is the perfect place for the Gaspar family meals. A new pendant light illuminates the dining table and a poster with the word "kitchen" in many languages is a festive, modern art piece.
Color was the driving force behind the remodel of this kitchen. The framed poster on the wall was the point of inspiration for the bright blue and orange infusion; the existing white banquette table, cabinets and appliances provided the perfect backdrop.
This long kitchen has had only minor adjustments since we moved in including repainted cabinets, a new floor, countertop and paint and the addition of a seafoam green salvaged vintage sink. Local art above the refrigerator by artist Cooper Sanchez dominates the space along with a vintage movie poster from my husband's collection.
Vintage meets mod in this slim entryway: An ornate ceiling medallion and turned-wood newel post mingle with a sleek graphic pendant and contemporary artwork. A second pendant carries the eye toward the kitchen beyond.
Out of what was once a cramped, dark kitchen, designers created this chic, friendly space. They removed a center post to help open up the room, then added elegant details like the countertops, pretty tile backsplash and gourmet appliances.
Under this pergola, the fireplace and kitchen island are configured in the corners of the patio. The layout keeps the lake view on full display and helps soften the wind's impact. Pergola posts were wrapped in white cedar to complement the house.
