Gracious and timeless, this coordinating butler’s pantry and open dining room featuring a custom hood surround are the heart of this stunning home.  We worked on this custom home for the builders of Tiburon Homes as their personal residence.  The biggest challenge/opportunity of this kitchen was the size and openness of the space.  We created natural functions in the large space, dividing it into four main areas: casual dining, butler’s pantry, serving station, and main kitchen.  The division was achieved through a variety of cabinet and finish styles, yet the space still feels cohesive, quiet, and organized.

The finish is Oxford rift and quartered oak and with a soft ceruse, a favorite in the O’Brien Harris library.  The cabinetry has integrated hardware—campaign-style pulls on the drawers give it a furniture feel.  In the kitchen, a finishing touch is oak banding around the cooktop and range cabinetry and refrigeration units.  We integrated the oak finish into the island and raised it up to feel lighter, adding polished stainless-steel cuffs to the legs.
