Goodbye 90's Kitchen

This home is nestled in a lush valley in the town of Millbrae. There is limited natural light so we used a variety of LED recessed cans, LED undercabinet lighting and incandescent cans over the sink. (This photo precedes the installation of hand blown pendants over the peninsula) The cabinets are solid beech, made with a horizontal grain by my cabinetmaker. The main counter surfaces are hand trowelled concrete, and the peninsula is recycled glass which incorporates the glass from the backsplash tiles to tie the surfaces together, both made by local supplier Concrete Interiors.

This photo has one question

Colors and natural elements everywhere in similar tones add soul in this near monochromatic kitchen
