Rustic Modern Kitchen

A re-creation of a 1950’s home in SF, is now family friendly and perfect for entertaining. A closed floor plan was opened to maximize the beautiful downtown bay view. Architectural finishes, fixtures and accessories were selected to marry the client's rustic, yet modern industrial style. Overall pallette was inspired by the client's existing sofa and side chairs. Project was done in collaboration with Mason Miller Architect. Photography: Photo Designs by Odessa

Amberlachelle, I still don't know the answer but I decided upon super white quartzite which looks similar to this. It's like carerra but doesn't require as much maintenance as marble. Hope this helps!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

The home's unique mix of textures is particularly evident in the kitchen. "Sheen and texture were very important in the color and material selection," says Baker. "An overabundance of shiny finishes would be too retro, and the opposite would be too rustic and less modern. A combination helped marry the two styles." Stove: 30-inch Viking convection rangeBar stools: Leo bar stool, Room & BoardRefrigerator: Miele KF1800 seriesSubway tile: Rittenhouse Square, DalTile

Skinny fridge. White tile backsplash. Nothing in the island. See related photo for dark wood open shelves that complement the white tile.
