A House with a View – Kitchen

The objective of the kitchen, which is open to the family room and the breakfast area, is to create multiple focal points, kitchen designer Peter Salerno says. The most obvious one is where the range and hearth align with the island, which runs parallel to the family room. In addition, the ceiling molding echoes that of the family room. “Everything is in harmony,” Salerno says. The furniture-grade walnut cabinets are a raised-panel design with a hand-rubbed white finish. The island is stained walnut, and the countertops are granite. The backsplash behind the range is white mosaic tile with a pot-filler faucet. The flooring is Turkish limestone. Among other features are a built-in coffee/espresso machine and wine cooler and a walk-through food pantry.
