The warm, gentle tones of our custom-stained walnut cabinetry are highlights in this smart, modern home, which includes a kitchen, bar, pantry, and butler’s pantry. This project was designed for a sizable family that frequently entertains extended family.  They wanted the ability to entertain large groups and allow space for the family to cook together.  Thoughtful solutions were given to many functional requirements, including dry storage and sufficient spice storage.

The architecture of this project is a more modern aesthetic, so the kitchen design followed suit.  The home sits on a wooded site, with expansive windows overlooking a pool.  Taking cues from the beautiful site, we focused the design on bringing the outdoors in to create an organic feel.  A natural stain was applied to walnut veneer timber so the grain of the wood comes through. The volume of the space opens up when you get to the kitchen.  Much consideration was given to the scale of the cabinetry, which is nestled into the architecture around the perimeter.
