The beauty of sustainable, natural wood is well expressed in lyptus cabinets.
Farmed Brazilian Eucalyptus is a renewable hardwood now trademarked as lyptus — a word that unfortunately sounds like a disease. An active grain, it’s nicely matched here by a Massachusetts cabinetmaker and looks equally good on the batten doors, slab front drawers and panels of veneer on the island. This kitchen is what most people would call “warm,” meaning that the predominate look is wood. There are dark gray granite counters, which seem almost incidental and a floor that almost produces a cigar box look. But it’s noteworthy because of the new source of eucalyptus. With a backsplash lacking, the owner installed a $199 Mexican sheet-iron organic branch motif wall hanging from Crate & Barrel. That creates an effective artistic focal point for the kitchen. A Brizo Venuto sink faucet is installed in the Butterfly verde granite on the island; the floor white oak.
