The kitchen is the automatic gathering place for this extra-large family. The big island and bar countertop provide plenty of space for prep work and casual eating. The cabinetry is made of maple and glazed with multiple colors by a professional artist in Mexico. The hood is custom made out of stainless steel and copper sheet metal for a rustic and authentic look. Chandelier: Lucite and petrified coral, Madeleine Weinrib; backsplash: Mexican red travertine; countertops: marble and butcher block
8. Crazy-Colorful Hacienda-Style KitchenDesigner: Ashley AstlefordLocation: Frisco, TexasFrom a completely blank slate to a Mexican-inspired explosion of color, designer Ashley Astleford didn't hold anything back when it came to the color palette of this Texas home. The home's interior kitchen relies on a blend of traditional Mexican colors and materials. The maple cabinetry was glazed by a professional artist in Mexico and echoes the same warm tones of the copper range hood, the terra-cotta floor and the incredible Lucite and coral chandelier.
