HGTV Dream Home 2014: Transitional Neutral Kitchen Facing Open Foyer
This view from the kitchen at the 2014 HGTV Dream Home showcases the textural and open feel of the transitional space and open layout of the lower floor. The spectacular kitchen's highlights include vaulted ceiling, exposed wood beams, sleek metallic, black kitchen appliances, marble counters and kitchen chairs that provide a bright yellow accent.
Designer Kelli Kaufer created this one-of-a-kind backsplash using her client’s prized collection of buttons (plus a few extras bought at garage sales and crafts stores). “I used a double-sided sticky mat,” she says. “Apply the mat to the wall and start placing the buttons. You may want to use the back side of the buttons as there are fewer ridges. Once the buttons are in place, apply a non-sanded grout just like you would grout normal tile. This will help hold the buttons in place.”

Its easy location next to the island makes the space useful for meals, prep work or just keeping the chef company.
