Across from the kitchen is this dining area with Arts and Crafts elements but a light and modern feel. "The built-in china cabinet is very modern because of the clean, crisp horizontal pattern in the doors," says Bubnowski. It was inspired by R. M. Schindler's King's Road House. The white planks surrounding the china cabinet introduce a coastal element. Tip: Mounting cabinets to the wall saves space and makes a room feel larger. "Cantilevering the cabinets allowed the white base to carry through the room, giving the illusion that these cabinets are floating," he says. The drawings over the cabinets are both colored pencil on trace renderings by Bubnowski, media inspired by Michael Graves, one of his favorite architects.
