Stylish and Functional

Designer Christine Donner uses brilliant white cabinetry to contrast against the dark floors and deep wood of the island. Art Deco-inspired hardware brings the stainless steel finish of the pro-quality appliances throughout the space.

Cottage Inspired

A farmhouse sinks adds cottage charm to the traditional-style kitchen, while stainless steel sconces flank the window to provide task lighting.

Chef's Kitchen

The kitchen was designed for homeowners who love to cook, so Donner includes stainless steel pro-quality appliances. Subway tile laid in a herringbone pattern adds to the classic feel of the space, while also creating visual interest.

Sophisticated Bar Area

On one wall, Donner creates a bar and beverage center that provides plenty of storage for glassware, wine and other bar essentials. The muted chocolate of the cabinetry flows well the white cabinets throughout the kitchen, while also defining it as a separate area.

Touches of Glam

Simple crystal knobs adds a little sparkle to the cabinetry of the bar area.
