In the kitchen, steel and glass upper cabinets disappear into an interior window, which allows as much light as possible into the kitchen and provide a spot to display art and dishes. Custom hardware adorns the lower cabinets and showcase a logo created just for the homeowners. Quarter-inch strips of glass were fused together to create the floating upper island top and are supported by steel hidden within the cabinets.
The kitchen appliances disappear into this custom art wall, which adds vibrant color and energy to the non-traditional kitchen. The wall is clad in reclaimed barn wood, and artist Rob Stenberg painted the design on the panels. Touch-latch cabinetry keeps the wall looking more like an art installation than kitchen cabinetry. A custom hemlock block island looks time worn and was fabricated by the homeowner.

This Southwestern-style bar showcases hair-on-hide panels as wallcovering and floating glass shelves suspended by threaded rebar rods with bolts to support the glass. The cowhides are arranged diagonally to create additional visual interest where they meet in the middle of the wall.
Pockets of seating create a sense of coziness in this outdoor room. The cavernous space benefits from the glow of interior lighting while boasting its own outdoor fireplace. A custom light fixture made from perforated metal stars made in Mexico adds regional style and sparkle.
Contrasting wood finishes give this office a sense of warmth while highlighting the custom spun glass rondelles set into the cabinet panels. The panels slide to the sides to conceal the bookshelves and office items and to reveal hand-turned wood pieces made by the homeowner that are displayed on the center shelves. The desk features custom-fabricated legs.
The Territorial style and adobe exterior of the house were both designed to complement the architecture of the local community. While the exterior remains more traditional, the interior spaces -- like this covered sitting area and its furniture -- are heavily influenced by contemporary style.
