The well-loved home was beautiful, but the kitchen had an eating area separated from the cooking area by a solid wall. The clients desired an open kitchen with a large island which provided an area for seating. The white custom cabinets topped with Carrara Venatino marble balanced the satin walnut island top.  The light openness of the kitchen area is now a favorite spot for family gatherings and morning coffee.     Photographer: Morgan Howarth
