"The inspiration for the kitchen was the kitchen in the movie "Something's Gotta Give," which features a distinctive Hamptons-style kitchen. It has the same general look with white, Shaker, classic inset-style cabinets; black honed granite countertops; and subway tile. The driving force behind this island was the homeowner's five young children-she wanted them to be able to sit all of them together there. The island orients her toward the family space while she's at the sink-she's not looking out the window or at a wall, but is turned toward her family."

"The island houses an integrated Miele dishwasher, full trash/recycling pullout and a beautiful Rohl farm sink and faucets with an oil bronze finish on both the faucets and cabinet hardware. Finally, the raise in middle of island was last minute idea the homeowner had. It helps to mask what's going on in the sink area from the family and makes the island less monolithic."
