Buena Vista Residence modern-kitchen
 

Buena Vista Residence

Typical of many San Francisco Victorians, this home’s kitchen had evolved over the years out of an enclosed porch. The centerpiece of the new light-filled space is a custom island / drop-leaf table that converts from a casual family dining area to an ample area for the children’s art projects, or seating for twelve. Open shelving and a series of custom ledges for the family’s seasonal canning efforts intensify the casual, working feel to the kitchen, which is both modern, yet appropriate to the essence of the home.

I believe they are Sutgasune pulls in bronze.

I'm pretty certain that all the cabinetry in this kitchen is custom made - At least the upper shelves with the sliding doors are...

None that I can think of. So long as they're long enough to allow you to touch the handle and not the cabinet door you'll be fine.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Kit Pollard added this to From Stored to Decor
I love to cook, so these spices look fantastic to me - and they tell a story about the people who live in this kitchen.
Becky Harris added this to 10 Steps for Organizing Kitchen Cabinets
This looks so good it makes me want to start growing and canning stuff just to get the look! Even though the mason jars vary in content and size, there is a uniform look here because it only mason jars were used. Mason jars are really inexpensive and look fantastic.
A mix of textures, including a concrete countertop and wooden cabinet, provides interest in this room’s composition, which blends traditional items with a modern flair.
Erika Ward - Erika Ward Interiors added this to Vintage Style: General Store Decor
In this hardworking pantry, perfectly organized mason jars beautifully display the season's harvest.
Margaret Everton added this to Organizing: Create Calm Within Chaos
This small kitchen exhibits how open shelving can look simultaneously full and ordered. Choose one kind of jar and fill them with bulk items you buy at the store. You can save on packaging and produce less waste. Plus it looks super cool.
The home’s original kitchen was far too small by current standards, but Schwartz believed there was something about the open shelving and casual, “working kitchen” feel of the existing kitchen that was worth preserving. The feeling of the space as a working kitchen was preserved by providing lots of open shelving and specific areas for canning operations and the display of the filled jars. This view of the shelving space deep in the galley shows how an otherwise overlooked corner can be both beautiful and well used. A small issue came up: The clients had already purchased a new refrigerator before the remodel, which meant that there were limited places where it could be placed. It is odd to have the refrigerator door swing determine so much of the floor plan, but that happens in remodeling all the time.
Becky Harris added this to Multipurpose Wonders: Mason Jars
Use: Canning for the winterResult: An effective way to keep your preserves with a styled look that's worthy of a design book.
Impress friends with your new skills. Once you discover the joy of sipping your morning coffee while watching your hens forage in the backyard, or pick the freshest, sweetest peas from your own backyard for dinner, you will hardly be able to restrain yourself from sharing your new hobbies with friends. Try hosting a canning party, a batch cooking club or even a neighborhood group with others interested in suburban or urban homesteading to make connections with others in your area.
Becky Harris added this to Get It Done: How to Clean Out the Pantry
Problem: The hodgepodge of pasta, rice, couscous and quinoa boxes makes you crazy.Solution: Invest in a large set of clear glass jars for storage. Their attractive uniformity will make you happy. These are also great for baking supplies like flour and sugar. You can also be more ecofriendly by bringing the jars to the grocery store with you and refilling them from the bulk bins.
Lisa Frederick added this to Displaying Kitchen Supplies — Hot or Not?
This petite kitchen elevates canister displays to an art form. Massing them on the shelves in different heights, with those gorgeous rows of red jars and copper pots, blends form and function in the best way.
