Cary Bernstein Architect Potrero ResidenceTransitional Kitchen, San Francisco
What Houzz contributors are saying:
There is nothing I love more than dining al fresco. On days when it's inappropriate (or impossible) to sit outside for meals, I notice I scoot my chair closer to the window to absorb as much sunlight as possible and pretend I'm outside. Blur the barrier between indoors and out with amazing floor-to-ceiling (or, in this case, bench-to-ceiling) windows that bring the outside in emotionally, even when you can't be there physically.
Here's a view out toward the front, through those tall skinny windows. Kids can enter the house through the left, hang coats on hooks, and toss their shoes into cubbies under the window seat. Cork wallpaper in the kitchen holds family notes, and the green jar on the upper shelf hides a charging station.
