Cook and Entertain

This large open-concept kitchen anchored with deep charcoal gray and white linen cabinets and stocked with five-star appliances creates a curated space with user-friendly layout made for cooking and entertaining.

Multi-Purpose Island

A multi-purpose, eat-in island with brushed stainless top offers prep space, seating for casual meals, or a spot to enjoy the stunning views of the mountains outside. The perimeter counters look like concrete and offer lots of additional work space.

Smart Layout

This view of the back of the island and sink area highlights the good traffic flow around the island and the designated work zones of the kitchen, so more than one person can cook at a time and guests can comfortably visit with the cook while meals are being made.

Color Contrast

While the bottom of the island and the surrounding lower cabinets have a deep charcoal gray color with a wood grain look, the upper cabinets have a white linen finish that keeps things light. “I didn’t want to create a dark kitchen, but I wanted some depth,” says designer Brian Patrick Flynn. “By keeping the darker finish below, it anchors the room visually and then adding the contrasting white up top keeps the room from darkening.”

Perfect for Parties

The kitchen’s top-quality stainless warming drawer in the island with premium touch control and automatic shutoff timer allows the cook to hold and warm up to 27 dinner plates, which makes it easier to entertain large crowds.

Handsome Hardware

The island includes spacious soft-close drawers for easy-access storage of kitchen essentials, with sturdy antique-finished black zinc pulls that have a vintage industrial style.

A Gourmet’s Dream

The kitchen's high-end gourmet stainless steel appliances perfectly coordinate with the industrial design details and modern fixtures chosen for this space made for the enthusiastic home cook.

Powerful and Quiet

The stainless dishwasher with a European handle located just to the left of the sink includes different wash cycles for normal, light and heavy loads, Wi-Fi connectivity and a super quiet performance.

Large User-Friendly Sink

The kitchen’s spacious undermount stainless steel sink includes an exposed hose pull-down faucet in black stainless with advanced technology that allows a simple touch of the faucet to start or stop the flow of water. The sink area also includes a coordinating soap dispenser in the same modern finish.

Bring the Outdoors Inside

A bi-fold accordion-style window on the sink wall brings lots of natural light and fresh air into the kitchen, with the home’s outdoor dining space and deck located just outside.

Complete Access

The large energy-efficient aluminum clad window folds back for easy operation. “It opens fully and gives you complete access to the countertop outside, making it easy to set plates from the kitchen to the dining area out back,” says project manager Scott Branscom.

Extra Details

Fresh flowers and a white bowl with fruit add color and a touch of nature to the kitchen. A selection of cookbooks on the countertop nearby offer inspiration for future gourmet meals at home.

Year-Round Comfort

The grand accordion-style window shuts and seals completely, so no cold air can enter the home during the frigid winter months. The crisp white trim around the window provides contrast for the kitchen’s grayish-brown walls.

Tons of Storage

Upper cabinets on each side of the cooking zone include round antique-finished black zinc knobs with an engraved burst design on the front. These stylish knobs coordinate with the sturdy pulls on the lower cabinets and drawers on the island.

Beautiful Backsplash

The glossy light blue ceramic tiles used for the kitchen’s beautiful backsplash include a realistic linen texture that creates a relaxed warmth not usually found in a hard surface like tile.

Dreamy Range

The kitchen’s dual fuel range includes features most home cooks only dream of, with six burners, two large convection ovens, electric griddle, electric grill with ceramic briquettes and more. The 60-inch wide stainless chimney wall hood above the range with dimmable LED lighting keeps smoke and odors from drifting into other spaces.

Efficient Layout

This wide view of the kitchen shows the efficient layout with appliances carefully placed in strategic locations that makes it easy to prepare daily meals and entertain.

Thrilling Prize

The exciting HGTV Dream Home 2019 prize package not only includes this stunning modern mountain escape located in Whitefish, Montana, it also comes with a check for $250,000.

Stylish Illumination

Three industrial-style pendants that coordinate with the different black and gray tones and shades of blue used in the room cast light over the kitchen island.

Second Sink

The island includes a handy prep sink with a sculptural-looking single handle bar faucet in black stainless for a sleek and striking modern profile. This second sink offers a spot to clean vegetables, wash delicate stemware by hand, or even fill with ice to chill wine and beer for parties.

Bake Up a Storm

A stand mixer on the counter next to the kitchen’s stylish wine refrigerator with stainless steel and glass bowls has a high performance motor with a title-back mixer head that makes it easy to access the bowl and beaters. A collection of cookbooks on the counter next to the mixer with subjects ranging from easy weekday recipes for the super-busy home cook to casual spreads for every occasion offer lots of inspiration.

Top-Notch Wine Preservation

The wine refrigerator with sleek stainless door handle features dual temperature zones, LED interior lighting, UV-protective glass and more, to preserve all your favorite bottles of wine.

Space-Saving Microwave

The stainless microwave drawer located by the kitchen’s side-by-side refrigerator saves counterspace and includes automatic sensor programs to make it easy to perform a variety of quick-cook tasks, from warming up plates of food to making popcorn for movie night at home.

Pantry Space

A white panel door leads to the kitchen’s pantry with custom shelving for efficient storage of dry goods and extra household supplies, painted a rich coffee brown color inside that adds contrast and visual depth.

Coordinated Space

This view looking into the kitchen shows the cohesive color scheme and coordinated look of the space, with blue bar stools at the island that provide casual seating for light meals or chatting with the cook.

Casual Seating

The four industrial-style bar stools with slanted legs at the island feature a sturdy black metal frame with suede-like durable PU fabric seat that stands up to frequent use.

Great Flow

This wide view of the kitchen highlights the engineered flooring that helps create a connection and great flow between the kitchen and the main living areas of the home.

Sleek and Stylish

The kitchen’s sleek side-by-side stainless refrigerator with European handles offers maximized storage capacity, with four refrigerator cabinet shelves, four refrigerator door bins, five freezer cabinet shelves and advanced temperature management.

Active Hub

This view of the island highlights the brushed-finished stainless top that has a smooth look and doesn’t show as many fingerprints or scratches as polished alternatives. The island top offers lots of usable space for preparing meals, unloading groceries and chatting with guests.

Chef Friendly

This easy-to-use kitchen offers the chance to try new cuisines or finally make those legendary family recipes. “It’s very chef-friendly the way it’s laid out,” says project manager Scott Branscom. “You can cook, serve, eat and stay in there all day if you want.”

Connected Spaces

The kitchen's open connection with the dining room and the lounge area of the great room makes it easy to entertain in this mountain modern style home with great flow.

Modern Living

This stunning view from the kitchen to the dining room and the lounge area of the great room shows the consistent color scheme and coordinated look for these main indoor living spaces of this lodge-style retreat.
