Casual Transitional Kitchen by Marlys Tokerud

Sub-Zero and Wolf's 2010-2012 Kitchen Design Contest. Being outdoors and hosting family and friends from around the country are what prompted a couple who summers in Montana to build a Prairie-style home in Houston's trendy. They asked Marlys Tokerud to design their entire home to honor the sensibilities of that most famous Prairie Style devotee, architect Frank Lloyd Wright. Tokerud tweaked floor plans and focused on the use of mixed raw materials to create an Arts and Crafts vibe with a contemporary edge. Since the kitchen is visible from the entry of the home, Tokerud ensured visual flow by carrying through Balsatina flooring and also used it on countertops. Then she layered on uniqueness. Mixing materials such as the diamond-finish stainless top of the large island, an entire wall of metallic pewter glass tile, and a leather-topped desk and table. Textured glass cabinet fronts echo the grid pattern of the backsplash tile, and thick wood display shelves showcase handcraft treasures acquired during a lifetime of travel. One of the more unusual materials — stained glass — was inspired because of limited wall space for artwork. The custom glass transom windows and doors create architectural art. Natural walnut cabinetry extends over the Sub-Zero side-by-side refrigerator freezer, and appliance garages keep small appliances and a mini cocktail bar within easy reach.
