The palette of cut limestone, dark stained oak millwork, and stainless steel is continued in the kitchen to unify the spaces within the open floor plan. The walnut butcher block island is appointed with cubbies for cookbook stor-age.
What Houzzers are commenting on:
Note alternating wood colors: dark grain uppers, light grained countertop, dark grained island lowers, light grained floor. If we wanted darker grained butcher block, keep upper and lowers lighter and go with a darker floor to preserve the alternating pattern?
