Two styles merge and red stars in living areas of a a family’s modern camp kitchen.
In a modern camp kitchen and living space things are fairly fancy. The walls and ceiling of the great room are paneled with rustic knotted cedar, while modern poured concrete flooring stretches from the dining area through the kitchen and into the living area. Even the rough-hewn trestle table is paired with straight-line leather chairs. Enormous sliding glass doors open the entire space to the outdoors.
In the center of it all is an eighteen foot long slice of walnut. This gorgeous hunk of wood retains its natural edges, giving the kitchen island an organic feel. Only a five-burner cooktop pierces the smooth expanse of the wood.
Three sides of the island are wrapped in raw metal, while the fourth contains cabinet drawers and an under-counter oven. A wall of earthy red cabinets are centered with granite, host to an undermounted sink and contemporary single-lever faucet. Open shelves hang below the upper cabinets, allowing quick access to most often used items. Each end of the cabinet run is equally weighted — an integrated refrigerator at one end and built-in pantry at the other.
The living area is anchored by a handsome stacked stone fireplace. Its raised concrete hearth provides firewood storage beneath. A built-in bed nook is a relaxing place to read or nap. Bookshelves and cabinets are also made from the knotted cedar, almost disappearing against the wall. The large coffee table offers a place to kick back or play board games in this camp-style compound.

The 18 Foot Island Kitchen, also has a reclaimed walnut counter on the island.
