With its U-shaped design and deep copper farmhouse sink perched in front of a bank of clear casement windows, this kitchen is classic to its core. The rich chocolate stain plays off of the rugged skip-peeled log beams. Variegated granite brightens the room.

Mix Things Up
This exceptional kitchen pulls a wide range of materials together in a way that works. The textured barnwood enclosing the refrigerator is in stark contrast to the satin-smooth granite topping a unique U-shaped island that seats six. The charcoal gray shade of the island’s base offsets the abundance of brown tones while keeping with the room’s overall neutral color palette.

An oversized stainless steel range hood is this kitchen’s showstopper. It provides a sleek, industrial touch to the quaint space. The cabinetry’s green wash adds color and whimsy, while open shelving puts dishware on display and reinforces the room’s cottage vibe.
