The kitchen's new design revolves around the 9-foot-long island. Stow and his team kept the client's desire for a multipurpose kitchen in mind and designed a large island that could serve multiple functions.
The island has two distinct seating areas, with under-counter cabinets for children's crafts and knickknacks on one end. The island countertop is custom made of 4" thick black walnut.
To give the kitchen a warm, farmhouse feel, they painted it a rich red, and accented it with simple barstools the clients already owned. Island paint color: Antique Red 7587, Sherwin WilliamsBacksplash: Walker Zanger Contessa Collection, Chantilly in Taupe
