But to mix it up, "we gave the island four legs and a different color so it looks like furniture," says John Varney, who made all the custom cabinetry. "That treatment adds depth and vitality to a white kitchen." Deidra's pride lies in the kid-accessible features, however. "Everything's just easy to get," she says, "and easy to put away."
An island with hand-turned legs, painted cabinets with visible brushstrokes, and substantial trim give the space a classic look.
