1. Two-toned cabinetry is so last decade. Why stop there when you can give tri-color a try? White perimeter cabinets help to expand the space, while the island’s rich, natural wood anchors the center of the room and the built-in chili-red hutch sizzles on the side.

2. Throughout the room, metal (found in the range hood, the pendants above the island, the gooseneck light at the window and the drawer pulls) is the element that ties the space together.

3. Rough-sawn oak timbers support the ceiling and lend a hint of farmhouse flair to the space.

4. The hardwood floors are constructed of mixed-width planks, ranging from 6 to 11 inches wide, for a naturally rustic look.

5. Classic blue-and-white cement tile adds the “splash” in backsplash. 

6. The counters may look like soapstone, but they’re actually more-resilient granite.
