This Dream Kitchen’s Timeless Design Will Last For Decades
At 924 square feet, this renovated kitchen by designer Elizabeth Metcalfe is generous — but no space is wasted. Hardworking zones, including an oversized island and office nook, make the room a breeze to navigate, while a mix of natural materials, such as white oak planks on the tray ceiling and oiled walnut on the island, creates an inviting ambience perfect for entertaining and family life.
Custom features including a wine storage wall and an artful light fixture cap off the distinctive yet timeless design. “I feel we captured the owners’ belief that quality is about more than a price tag or name brand,” Elizabeth adds. “It’s about something that will look beautiful for decades to come.” Click through to see the stunning space.
