A classic country kitchen that manages to simultaneously convey family warmth and an atmosphere of innovation and modernity. The kitchen, which is made of solid wood, sits elegantly on a natural wood floor in a space that is bathed in natural light. At the heart of the kitchen is an island with an impressive oak butcher block and contrasting cabinets painted an opaque cream color which mutes the texture of the wood. The island and cabinets contain a large amount of open and closed storage space.
Often, the design of country style kitchens requires a broad picture of the various spaces of the house, and the location of the kitchen relative to them. Here, the element of location is expressed by emphasizing the kitchen as the meeting point between the interior of the house and the outside courtyard. The kitchen is flooded with light from the outside through the Belgian windows that surround it, and its design embraces and relates to several areas. Towards the interior, this is a family country style kitchen that serves as a perfect area for an intimate gathering. Towards the outside, the kitchen presents a clear flow to the spaces that adjoin it, leading both to them and from them.
