Spanish Oaks Residence Kitchen contemporary-kitchen

Spanish Oaks Residence Kitchen

This soft contemporary home was uniquely designed to evoke a coastal design feeling while maintaining a Hill Country style native to its environment. The final design resulted in a beautifully minimalistic, transparent, and inviting home. The light exterior stucco paired with geometric forms and contemporary details such as galvanized brackets, frameless glass and linear railings achieves the precise coastal contemporary look the clients desired. The open floor plan visually connects multiple rooms to each other, creating a seamless flow from the formal living, kitchen and family rooms and ties the upper floor to the lower. This transparent theme even begins at the front door and extends all the way through to the exterior porches and views beyond via large frameless glazing. The overall design is kept basic in form, allowing the architecture to shine through in the detailing.

Lots of folks mix brands, you just need to think a little more about it than if you went with the same brand, such as whether the handles have a similar look etc... :) Rhoda

It looks like laminate on the cupboards ( I have very similar colouring kitchen so it looks like the same) and I agree - those handles are fabulous! I would be keen to find out where they got them too!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

The kitchen, dining and family areas are all designed to function together as a large, open expanse; the continuous ceiling and use of glass help achieve this goal. The dark kitchen cabinets anchor the space visually, while an antique chandelier serves as the only embellished counterpoint to the sleek, contemporary design of the space.
