The designer said, “We wanted the kitchen to feel familiar, like your grandma’s kitchen, but at the same time feel fresh,”

I say, "Mission accomplished. Bravo!!"

The design is that and so much more. I've looked at the photos and read Becky's descriptions several times and will again. This is simply one of the most unique, beautiful, fitting designs I've ever seen. If money and space allowed, this exact kitchen would be mine. (And I'm not a big fan of green or brass!) With Becky's explanation that the refrigerator is to the left and sink to the right, I can visualize the entire kitchen without seeing a photo.

As to the first takeaway note about open cabinets: Having had both, I found open cabinets to be more conducive to everyday use; more utilitarian than open shelving. Wonderful compromise.
