In keeping with the charm of this North Valley home, this kitchen called for modern design with a nod to it’s Southwestern roots. The details of Southwestern style don’t overpower the space, but subtly repeat on the range hood and the raised island. The island serves not only as a functional work space, but also a raised buffet server for entertaining. The contrast of the antique white against the knotty alder makes for a warm modern color palette. Every corner of this space is integrated to ensure that storage is maximized, including corner cabinet pullouts, and integrated appliances. This kitchen is a modern Southwestern showstopper.
