Modern Yet Traditional Kitchen Design

Dramatic ceiling-height Bianco Carrara marble backsplash anchors the symmetrical design.

"The kitchen is decidedly untraditional, with black lower cabinets and no uppers," says Lynda Reeves of the 2012 Princess Margaret Showhome. Marble, embellished with traditional recessed panels, also wraps around the back and sides of the island.
