• Wendy F. Johnson, CKD, CBD of Designs for Living in Manchester Village, VT, incorporates nature-inspired elements in this kitchen, including a wood barrel ceiling, Bentwood cabinetry, recycled tile backsplash and colorful glass panels on linear rift oak-faced refrigerators from Sub-Zero. The cooking wall includes Wolf double undercounter ovens and a stainless range, as well as a handcrafted metal hood with a custom copper finish. The center island features a raised floating LED-lit glass top from ThinkGlass, and continues with a baking center featuring St. Charles cabinetry and wood countertop from Grothouse Lumber. A Miele dishwasher, Waterstone faucets and sinks from Mila International, Kohler and Linkasink finish the space.

• A historic home is the site of this kitchen, designed by Bryan Reiss, CMKBD of Distinctive Design in Mt. Pleasant, SC, along with co-designers Susanne Csongor and Diane Murphy of SLC Interiors. Original heart pine floors, arched windows and exposed brick and beams give the room a distinctive personality. Dark Matrix granite countertops provide stark contrast to the oversized white cabinets from Premier Custom Built along the wall. A Thermador refrigerator/freezer is also paneled in the white cabinetry, which is broken up by the Wolf range and custom copper range hood from Abbaka. A large black island includes a Bosch dishwasher, Franke sink and Rohl faucet in polished nickel.

• Reminiscent of the Rennie Mackintosh style from the Arts and Crafts movement, this kitchen – designed by Brigitte C. Fabi, CMKBD of Drury Design Kitchen & Bath Studio in Glen Ellyn, IL – incorporates quarter-sawn oak and black hickory cabinets from Grabill Custom Cabinets, topped with Honed Black Absolute Granite on the perimeter and Capolavoro Granite on the island. The hearth houses an electric cooktop, wall oven and range hood from Bosch, with Motawi tiles. The space also features a Bosch dishwasher, fully integrated Miele refrigerator, Kohler Vault sink and Danze Como faucet, as well as a Dacor microwave drawer in the island. A secondary kitchen/wet bar includes a KitchenAid beverage center and floor-to-ceiling cabinetry.
