The homeowner didn’t want typical rows of upper cabinets found in many kitchens. Eliminating upper cabinets provides a more open look, but it can leave a kitchen desperate for useful storage. Now even with a few upper cabinets, storage is abundant thanks to clever use of vertical space, lower cabinets packed with functional storage accessories, as well as a cabinet recessed into an unused chase in the wall which is perfect for storing a blender and other small appliances.  While this kitchen remodel resulted in a stunning display of craftsmanship and artistry, it is ultimately a cook’s kitchen. A massive island with a hand-crafted black walnut top provides plenty of space for food preparation. One of the most striking features of

 this kitchen is the corbel ceiling which extends over the gently curved seating bar. The corbel is coated with several layers of Venetian plaster, which is a mixture of aged lime, marble dust and pigment. It is polished by hand, looks like antique stone, is luxurious to the touch and is incredibly durable. The result: A one-of-a-kind kitchen that’s not only beautiful but also functional.
