1. Paint Within
Colorful interior cabinetry is a twist on the classic ivory kitchen.
2. Cozy Seating
The generous built-in banquette welcomes friends and family into the kitchen. A wraparound shelf showcases the owner’s pottery collection and unifies the room.
3. Hands-free Fixtures
The foot-operated faucet, a design common in commercial kitchens, reduces the spread of dirt and germs.
4. Folk-art Details
Thoughtful, handmade details like this punched-tin medallion give the room a homey look.
5. Easy Access
Custom drawer inserts keep pans separated and within reach.
6. Simple Touches
A few drill holes turn the Shaker-front cabinets into works of art.
