Natural Art

With such an incredible view outside, it was important for these homeowners to blend nature's beauty with the design of their kitchen. Designer Lori Carroll used carefully chosen patterns and textures to reflect the desert views outside. A bold but still neutral color palette reflects the varying hues seen from the large wall of windows above the sink.

Southwestern Kitchen Seating

A great place for entertaining, this Southwestern-style kitchen features several seating areas, including barstools, kitchen island seating and even a custom banquette.

Making Space

Despite the fact that almost an entire wall of this Tucson kitchen is set apart for displaying the picturesque desert views, a curved line of cabinets is placed just below the windows in order to make smart use of space without sacrificing beauty.

Dinner With a View

Curved upholstered seating in this spacious banquette assures there's always plenty of room for family and friends to cozy up and enjoy a delicious meal beneath a jaw-dropping view.

Island Seating

A few chairs at the end of this curved kitchen island allow family and friends to gather in the kitchen, keeping the cook company while also taking in the amazing desert skies seen from every window in this Southwestern kitchen.

Kitchen Conveniences

A kitchen that features a convenient pot filler, display cupboards and even under-cabinet lighting makes light of kitchen duties and allows more time for enjoying the beautiful space.

Design From Nature

The mosaic tile backsplash and blue gas-range oven may be the best examples of how Lori combined color, pattern and texture to mimic the desert views outside, creating a cohesive design from the inside out.
