Kitchen With a Table for Two

A cute little round table offers a spot just for two at the end of a long kitchen island. Sleek wooden cabinets offer plenty of concealed storage and add to the room’s transitional style. A large window behind the sink floods the room and natural light, making it appear brighter and larger.

Coffered Ceiling in Transitional Kitchen

The coffered ceiling conceals structural beams and adds a textured touch to the kitchen ceiling. A mix of natural, ambient and task lighting makes this kitchen both more pleasant and functional.

Smart Kitchen Island Storage

Floor-to-ceiling cabinets and an island with storage give every kitchen essential a home of its own. The long island was carefully outfitted with drawers and open space for quick reaching, and it also serves as a bake center.

Kitchen With Custom Accents

The copper farmhouse-style sink was the perfect accessory to complete this gorgeous kitchen by designer Rebecca Lindquist. The custom-designed range hood features small shelves for the owner's pepper mill and olive oil.

Dining Room With Dark Wood Finish

A dining room just off the kitchen continues the same style found in the charming transitional kitchen, while mixing up the design with a darker wood finish and a more atmospheric ambiance.
