In this kitchen, a large window provides lots of natural light to the mostly wooden kitchen. Exposed shelves are used to store recipe books, and the kitchen has achieved a contemporary look by not including hardware on the cabinets.
A l ¡ n a my favorite kitchen : natural tone. love the stone tops, double sink. maybe the raised side. would want to be able to sit comfortably on the raised side- avoid clutter there if its functional.
