A central yellow island is cheery and accentuates the home’s happy mood. Quartzite counters are as beautiful as they are serviceable. An apron-front cast iron sink sits on the expansive window wall with a view overlooking the garden. Handmade tiles from counter to ceiling add to the touches found throughout the home. Cabinets in a soft white finish exude practical elegance. A powerful range, sleek refrigeration, and super-quiet dishwasher add professional style.

Tucked away just off the kitchen is a serviceable and practical super-pantry with additional appliances, such as wall ovens, a second refrigerator, coffee maker, sink, and dishwasher. The vinyl wall covering will keep this handy, hard-working space looking good for years. Charming wall sconces flank the window and elevate the view.

From the Judges
Judges loved the happy vibe in this kitchen, from the shiplap to the painted wood to the pops of yellow. The “super pantry” is a great addition and completely elevates the plan.
