The vision of this Floridian-inspired kitchen was to be simple, yet luxurious. Warm laminate cabinetry creates a sleek theme with natural wood patterns that complement the light counter tops, flooring, and neighboring stacked stone columns. The live-edge wood bar on the kitchen island was made custom for the space to provide a unique, natural element, built with the correct thickness and dimension to make the space both beautiful and comfortable.

Intricate, modern pendants hover above as functional light and art features. Indoor/outdoor living was a highlight of the home design, which carries to the kitchen area with a folding door unit that connects this space to the summer kitchen, featuring a wet bar in between that also opens with a folding window unit.

From the Judges
The live edge is great and the stove hood is very on trend. This kitchen incorporates so many textures and materials, yet is still clean and still "goes together.” The project team also incorporated a lot of cool, interesting elements, such as the waterfall edge and little corner windows.
