Algoma Retreat


What Houzz contributors are saying:

The reclaimed barn wood also surrounds the refrigerator.The counters are Richlite, a sustainable material made of resin covered paper. "There was so much white in the house that we needed some contrast," says Lamaster-Millett. The long horizontal windows let in the light, let the line of cabinets continue uninterrupted, and provide a connection between the front porch picnic table and the kitchen. FLOS Glo-ball pendant lights were a splurge, but Lamaster-Millett saved money by using cabinets from IKEA. She had the millworker who made the island provide them with proper bases, and added a valance for undercabinet lighting.
