Light Contemporary Kitchen by Laurie B. Haefele

NKBA's 2012 Design Competition Winner: Large Kitchen - Second Place.

White, sleek and beautifully simple are all words to describe this contemporary kitchen. A neutral backdrop is punctuated through the implied texture of a riff cut Walnut counter with a strong grain that continues along the top and down the sides, as well as color pops introduced through the vibrant stools and pendant lighting.

The design delivers a clean, crisp look that makes it hard to imagine a space providing more natural light or flow without it being outside. Even though this kitchen is one step removed from the outdoors, the layout provides for a nice view of the ocean from various points in the room. Unlike those in the nearby ocean, the designer provided the islands in this kitchen and paid close attention to the work plan. The whole process of storage, cooking, prep and cleanup is all accessible with minimal travel from one spot to another, further enforcing this kitchen's place in the clients' minds as an island paradise.
