Lowry Hill Kitchen

Carefully designed contrasts between light and dark colors, textured materials and smooth surfaces converted this once dim and uninviting kitchen into a welcoming sanctuary for a busy family. Located on the north side of a Colonial Revival-style house, the updated kitchen now brings in light through large windows that bounces off the pale grey-painted cabinetry and white tile walls, while black shelves and window frames highlight the kitchen's spare, clean character.
