The kitchen stands at the center of the house. On both kitchen and dining room walls, cypress 1 x 10s alternate with 21⁄2-inch-wide boards. A sheer ivory-colored finish was applied to the horizontal cypress paneling, giving a light and airy feel.
Here, the open storage is both a means of displaying cookware and an example of creative shelf design. The wooden shelves rest on metal supports and hang from pieces of galvanized pipe. The open shelving is great for showcasing serving pieces and pottery, and guests love them because they can easily find needed items.
