Ranch-Style Casual, City Sizzle
Whether it’s a gathering of two or 20, this great room/kitchen celebrates the joy of entertaining. A cook-top center island is the focal point — think plenty of space to sauté and sizzle while still chatting with guests either kicking back or actively involved in the culinary adventure. There’s even a microwave conveniently placed below the counter and storage galore in both drawers and cabinets. Echoing the country-style double sink’s copper patina, the island’s solid slab granite surface is dark and luscious. Blond-on-blond, natural wood cabinetry and flooring creates an unexpectedly rhythmic and playful, vertical orientation accented by a warm ledgestone backsplash that reoccurs on the hood fan. Rustic casual with a distinctly contemporary edge, the effect is a fusion of country and city. When the cooking’s done, pull up a chair and chow down at the Round Table – modern glass atop a wood base. Chairs are barley-twist Edwardian with a Wild West bronco pattern on the seats, while adding a further touch of whimsy, a semi-abstract Dude Ranch poster hangs above the built-in buffet. Now all that’s left is to saddle up and ride on out.
