Notes on interior decorating with wood countertops: A wide-open floor plan required the kitchen to smoothly integrate into the room, as well as the exterior environment. Walls of floor to ceiling windows surround the house and allow the interior and exterior to bounce back and forth. Charcoal Architectural Veneer was chosen for the cabinet doors and drawer fronts. A walnut seating ledge has a waterfall edge on one end and subtly defines the kitchen. The simple form hood was made in Cor-ten Steel and weathered on site until it reached the desired level of patina. #KitchenBarTop #KitchenIsland #CustomWoodCountertops Read the designers blog here.
