Throughout this home, designers aimed for a look that was farmhouse friendly, but more polished than rustic. The open plan kitchen uses shades of blue to contrast the white and wood elements: navy barstools and a custom gray-blue for the pendants.
Designing a room that's mostly or all white ensures you'll have a room that always feels streamlined and clutter-free.

The landscape just out the large sliding glass door brings nature and color into the room.
The design team removed a wall to open up this California kitchen, revealing a ceiling-height window that ushers in loads of natural light. A modern island was added in the renovation and features a waterfall edge and shiplap detail. Four natural wood barstools allow for ample seating and tie in with the white oak cabinetry. Soaring ceilings support rustic-modern pendant lights that add to the room's organic vibe.
This kitchen was reconfigured to showcase a central island with waterfall edges and light open shelving. Custom walnut cabinetry with brass and matte black accents keep it feeling both warm and masculine. The adjoining breakfast nook follows the same line of minimal Scandinavian monochromatic finishes with a punch of design energy via the brass tulip table base.
Bright white shiplap paneling cleans up the walls in the kitchen and matches the base of the island. Over the island, pendants get a coat of customized light blue paint, softening their industrial edge.
Windows and sliding glass doors allow plenty of natural light in this beautiful kitchen, highlighting the crisp white cabinets and light wood walls for a bright, breezy atmosphere. Black countertops and shelves provide striking contrast in the light-hued space.
