The mantel surround provides ample storage, with every square inch designed to have a practical use. These walnut drawers provide a useful place to store oils, vinegars etc. within easy reach of the range. As seen in another image, the gap between these drawers and the edge of the cabinet is used to store dried herbs and spices, accessible via a door on the side.
Both of these houses were on the Cool House Tour of 2008. They were newly constructed homes, designed to fit into their spot in the neighborhood and to optimize energy efficiency. They have a bit of a contemporary edge to them while maintaining a certain warmth and "homey-ness".

The turned legs at the island and desk area have feet which compliment the existing media center furniture. The organic light fixtures are used at the sink, over the table and as seen here three island pendants; their square shades in contrast to the whimsical supports. Delicious Kitchens & Interiors, LLC
