Our lake kitchen needed to be functional and up to date but traditional enough to fit in with our more formal cottage and antiques. Rob designed a perfect kitchen for us. Rob streamlined the look but added the important little details that make a kitchen unique. Our kitchen is wonderful for cooking, it has tons of storage, and it is beautiful to see.

This image has been saved to hundreds of ideabooks, and pinned nearly as many times. Due to the prolific sharing of the image, we’ve been asked many questions about this project. Well, we should clarify, we’ve been asked four questions over and over again and we are unable to answer them.

I love contemporary design. Done correctly it looks effortless, but don’t be mistaken: there is no room for error. The balance of materials /selections is very important. I love the clean lines, but yet the finish is very warm and inviting.
Appliance placement is everything when it comes to kitchen design. In today’s market they make an appliance for just about every need, so you can really be creative when laying out the appliances for the client. Notice in this kitchen the double ovens are split on the center island. This will allow two cooks in the kitchen and/or freedom to move around the kitchen.
I will post more pictures later,
