The kitchen cabinetry is being installed – custom walnut built by a carpenter here in San Francisco. I prefer the ‘true’ brown tone that walnut has over other woods. Not too yellow, not too red, so it won’t compete with the greenish floor tiles – or art, furniture, etc.
The island with space for stools sits opposite the counter at the wall. There will be open shelves in front of the windows (no real view out them so it’s OK); the only upper cabinets are to the side above the refrigerator. A range and hood will sit in between the windows.. can’t wait to see it.
The space for the refrigerator and surrounding cabinetry. The penny-round tiles (almost the color of old pennies!) are in the hall bathroom outside the kitchen. More penny rounds – white – in a guest bathroom seen below. Shown next to the entry steps clad in the same slate as the kitchen/family room.
