Designed to indulge a busy lifestyle, the kitchen is packed with convenient features. The modified, one-wall layout is extremely efficient, with zones for prep and cleanup positioned between the transitional cooktop and a collection of top-of-the-line appliances. Keeping everything within easy reach, cabinetry is installed at one end with countertops in close proximity to all the essential cooking equipment. A central island that houses the sink keeps the integrity of the traditional work triangle intact.

A nature-inspired color palette evokes images of warm destinations and adds dimension to rooms meant for relaxing. Ranging from light to dark, the tones and textures make the cooking, sitting, and dining areas cohesive. Furnishings are arranged to create family-oriented zones within the open rooms, with a sweeping countertop, separate from the center island, opening up the floor for conversation. Without walls, guests can gather around the peninsula or dining table without feeling they have left the kitchen.
