Removing the dining room wall and rotating the island allowed for optimum seating and natural flow in the open floor plan. “Achieving symmetry is always a top priority, so I made sure the range hood, sink and island pendants were on a continuous plane,” designer Kara Vacca says. Cabinets were refinished in “Kendall Charcoal” by Benjamin Moore. Concrete countertops—light gray on the island and a walnut-look along the perimeter—work in the classic neutral scheme.
