I always marvel at this amazing kitchen, which reminds me of historic New England as it leaves aside the usual notion of how a kitchen looks and adapts furniture forms instead.
There are four different dressers or hutches, each in a different color and configuration. The one nearest the arched doorway on the right appears to be a refrigerator armoire like the ones we love in disguise. The yellow cabinet — a chest-on-chest has two tiers of doors — the lower set function like an appliance garage. On the left, a classic hutchen with glass-doors on top can be used for china storage display.
Dove-gray paint emphasizes the simple lines of the island with its open end and clean, tapered legs, topped by butcher block. The island also houses the main sink.
Essentially, this is a galley kitchen and the range wall is built out as a beautifully proportioned grand hutch, built out so that the hood looks like part of the furniture. An antique pine floor and Oriental rugs heighten the elegance and uniqueness of this cooking space.
