A neutral, outdoor look balances refined materials to give this kitchen a quaint yet elegant feel. Calacatta marble countertops and the tiled backsplash help create a modern-meets-country aesthetic. Travertine floors and dark-stained cabinetry add textural and color interest. At the center of the room, the island offers space for seating and meal preparation and can work as a buffet table, too. The cooking zone directly behind it, wet bar area to the left, and appliance wall to the right supply adequate space for different kitchen tasks, reducing clutter, and directing traffic flow.
