A palette of cottage white and wood mixes easily with midcentury modern style and function. Drawers, specialized for utensils, cookware, and tasks. Tiled panels flanking the stove slide sideways to reveal a spice storage and TV; above, quarter-sawn oak cabinets hide additional storage. Brass and bronze pendants cast their light on leathered granite countertops and wood-look concrete dining surface, crafted in metal, doubles as a modernistic sculpture.
The Diminutive Pantry
This diminutive walk-in pantry performs myriad tasks in singular style. Behind its mullioned-glass door, red lacquered walls draw the eye in and up. Inside, one finds a wine bar, coffee station, wall storage, lighted shelving, and generously-sized drawers conveniently lit from within. A sturdy walnut countertop handles tasks and the easy-to-clean subway tile backsplash makes this pantry a true workplace.
