Rustic-Contemporary Kitchen

Weathered wood meets sleek modern lines.

Homeowner, chef and food stylist Claire Stubbs wanted this kitchen to be the focal point of her new home. Though most of her budget went to structural elements, she saved up for the finishes and appliances she’d always wanted, like two-inch-thick Calacatta d’Oro marble countertops and a Wolf range. Lower cabinets with reclaimed wood fronts conceal fridge and freezer drawers, as well as a dishwasher.
