JMA modern-kitchen


Home built by JMA (Jim Murphy and Associates); designed by architect BAR Architects. Photo credit: Doug Dun.

Inspiration drawn from the world, in harmony with the land. Rancho Miniero: Nestled into a sloping hillside, this home’s design gradually reveals itself as you drive up to the auto court, walk through an opening in a garden wall and enter through the front door. The expansive great room has a 15-foot ceiling and concrete floors, stained the color of worn leather. A series of dramatic glass archways open onto the pool terrace and provide a stunning view of the valley below. Upstairs, the bedrooms have floors of reclaimed hickory and pecan. The homes’ copper roof reflects sunlight, keeping the interior cool during the warm summer months. A separate pool house also functions as an office. Photography Doug Dun

That looks like a well-oiled and well-used maple, but it could be a walnut one that's dried out a bit and therefore is lighter.

what does drying out have to do with the color of the butcher block? I'd like a light one too! Not yellow!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Kit Pollard added this to Kitchen Design: To Hood or Not to Hood?
Hoods are a natural solution for venting island stovetops. Here, pot racks make the hood seem like a natural part of the ceiling-scape - it doesn't stand out. Plus - functional!
The Lettered Cottage added this to Waterlox Rocks on Wood Countertops
A ginormous wood island creates one heck of a work station in this amazing kitchen.
Rebekah Zaveloff | KitchenLab added this to Kitchen Design: Bringing Restaurant Style Home
Pot racks and open shelving for easy access. Chefs need to see everything and be able to grab it quickly. Don't hide the pots and pans that are discolored due to heavy use. Those are the scars of battle and should be worn proudly. They show the world that you cook.
Between Naps on the Porch added this to Pot Racks: Great Storage Solution for Small Kitchens
If you have a large island, you may want to consider having pot racks on either end. Usually, pot racks are hung over an island but they can be hung over any surface you choose. You'll just want to make sure there's enough distance between the edge of the surface below to keep someone from bumping into the items you'll be hanging overhead. Tip: Pot racks are normally hung 42" above the counter surface.
