1. Movable Island
Equipped with wheels, this custom zinc-topped table can roll out of the way during parties.
2. Refrigerator Drawers
When you skip the big, bulky fridge, you get a lot more counter space.
3. Stone Backsplash
Most designers would install ceramic tile here, but quartz gives the room an earthy feel.
4. Open Shelving
Simple wooden shelves with well-designed brackets hold plenty of dishes.
Why not add a little romance to the kitchen when the sun goes down?
6. Closets Galore
Deep cabinets in the rustic-looking mudroom swallow linens, small appliances, and large serving pieces.¬†Barn-inspired detailing such as this closet’s slatted openings set the stage for country entertaining.
