White quartz counters top this island in a waterfall design adding a crisp pop of freshness to the mostly dark brown palette.
A desk and console table made out of wide blocks of wood are simple, stylish and provide a unifying visual thread in the open concept layout.
A wall that once crossed in front of the cooktop was removed to open up the kitchen to the great room. This helped to visually enlarge the space.

Cabinets that reach all the way up to the ceiling make sure there's plenty of storage space as well as room for appliances, including a mini fridge.
Nailhead-trim barstools sport a cheery array of colors: blue, orange, yellow and green. They're a playful pop in a mostly subdued palette.
Adding a tabletop extension to the back of this kitchen island gives eat in potential to the streamlined space.
