Zen and the Art of Kitchen Cabinets

From Into the Wood, October 1999

I love wood, and the Zen simplicity of Greene and Greene design, both of which are captured in this small but lovingly detailed kitchen. The finely crafted inset cherry cabinets with their maple door and drawer pulls and walnut accents are a feast for the eye, while the black slate countertop and farmhouse sink provide a cool and weighty durability that nicely offsets all those warm wood tones. However, unlike a lot of Craftsman-styled kitchens, this one isn't dark or cramped, in part thanks to its soaring ceiling and cream-colored walls.
