White Cottage Great Room With Barstools

A classic, clean aesthetic was the goal for this kitchen remodel. Mixing different textures—wood, metal, stone—keeps the neutral palette from looking ho hum.

White Cottage Kitchen With Gray Barstools

To enhance the kitchen cabinets' clean lines, the designers chose vertical cabinet hardware. Gray-washed benches are the perfect complement to the dark stained wood floor and gray-washed beams on the ceiling.

White Transitional Chef Kitchen With Lanterns

The open expanse of the kitchen allows a peek into the butler's pantry on the left and the living room on the right. Gilt iron lanterns over the island pay homage to the homeowners' love of French New Orleans style and are a graceful complement to the stainless steel and nickel finishes of the faucets and appliances.

White Cottage Kitchen With Marble Backsplash

Crisp white cabinetry and white marble countertops and backsplashes act as a neutral canvas on which the designers layered varied metal finishes and woods. The gray veins in the Calcatta marble is the perfect compliment to the stainless steel range.

White Cottage Open Plan Kitchen With Vaulted Ceiling

Seating is provided at both the expansive island and the cozy banquette in the bay window. The ceiling beams pull the eye down the entire length of the long room.

White Transitional Kitchen With Breakfast Nook

An eleven-foot-long island makes sure there's plenty of seating and prep space. And for morning coffee, there is a cozy, sun-filled breakfast nook in the bay window.

White Transitional Breakfast Nook With Banquette

A banquette in a semi-circle makes a so-cozy breakfast nook at one end of the kitchen. A petite round table is just the right companion.
