Stairway to Elegance-Kitchen

 |  Photographer Peter Rymwid  |  Designer Diane Gote

Traditional molding and mahogany cabinetry bring English style to the kitchen. There are two islands; a great way to accommodate two cooks as well as guests who can sit at one of the islands, designer Diane Gote says. One of the islands has a wood countertop while the other is topped in black granite, as are the perimeter countertops. Pewter tiles behind the range add interest. A painted gray pantry has glass fronts to display dishes. The clean, simple fixtures over the island are an example of how the designer “pulled back” to lighten the formal look.
