Shapes became the defining focal point in the design of this airy and bright kitchen. Swooping ceilings take advantage of their height to supply skylights and infuse the space with natural light at every possible moment. The ceiling curves are repeated in the head space around the countertop, sink, and stove niches, and inset into the walls. Bits of gray and sea-blue offer soothing color selections, and the expansive island/gathering space warms the kitchen with a rich stain. Square pendants help the eye travel from ceiling down.
