Design Notes: With a soaring truss ceiling and two islands, this large French country style kitchen swathes its space in shades of butter yellow and blue. The cabinets reach 10 feet high, taking advantage of the room's lofty height and adding extra storage options. Two sinks, dishwashers and refrigerators make plenty of extra storage, prep and clean-up for these homeowners to entertain.
