The gorgeous built-in hutch above shows all its wonderful knots in the wood and the color looks great paired with the painted cabinets.  Open the doors and you have the most wondrous pantry. I like doors like this that provide a space for spices. You can easily find them as opposed to digging toward the back of the cabinet to find the turmeric that doesn’t get as much action as cinnamon. The kitchen also has a convenient place for cookbooks in the shelving unit at the end of the island.

A view from one end of the English style kitchen reveals the full effect of light, natural wood combined with the painted cabinetry. Love the choice of red for the pendant lights in this space, The non-functioning fireplace by the dining table has been outfitted with an iron stove. Look carefully and you’ll see an alcove for storing wood.

At first glance, you might think that pulling on the knob of this cabinet “door” will reveal shelves. Instead, it’s a drawer that can be accessed from either side. This is much easier than having to dig toward the back of the cabinet for something.

I also need a drawer like this so I don’t have to fight bakeware and lose the battle when everything comes crashing out. Sigh. I envy anyone who has this.

Glassware and dishes are stored in the cabinetry next to the dining table. The owner can place their beloved crystal stemware behind the glass-front doors for viewing and admiring. My own kitchen doesn’t have very many cabinets, so I’ve added free-standing pieces to create storage opportunities.
