Modern Kitchen With Colorful Reclaimed Wood Island
To give a California ranch-style home a fresh, modern twist, designer Kristianne Watts used a mix of materials in the kitchen. “On the island we used reclaimed boat wood from Indonesia. With the original paint still on each plank, it brings an authentic feel to the space,” she says. “The raised bar is Portland cement, which can be broken and recycled. The countertops are a quartz from Silestone/Cosentino. The custom cabinetry on the perimeter is an environmentally friendly wood veneer, FSC-certified Shinnoki pre-finished wood panels in Midnight Ash.”

In this cottage-style space, for example, Jeremy Power of Bella Custom Homes used the center island to add warmth and interest. “We built the island using reclaimed barn wood and topped it with a honed Carrara marble countertop,” he says. The “X” details on each end are a subtle nod to the home’s country roots.
