White glass was the finish of choice for the major appliances; brushed stainless steel serves as an accent.
The stacked stone fireplace surround has no grout, showcasing its rough-hewn beauty.
Colorful cast-iron sinks in the butler’s pantry and breakfast area add a bright spot of color to an otherwise neutral palette.
Long popular in Europe, the induction cooktop marks a growing trend in the United States.
The tiles in the breakfast area are white-painted glass with gold leaf accents.
The rectangular main sink has an offset drain (which allows for easier storage below) and a recessed edge that can accommodate several inserts, such as a colander, cutting board and drain basket.
Pots are hung in a glass-and-stainless cabinet, rather than overhead on a rack, so they can still be seen, but not close-up.
