"The client loves gardening and wanted to take advantage of the big, private backyard. We reworked the windows, added some new ones, and didn't use any window coverings. The glass-fronted cabinets add to the windows' light and airy effect.
"To make up for lost storage, we added rollouts, cabinet space under the island cooktop, interior organizational systems, and a row of floor-to-ceiling cabinets on the opposite wall.
"Other elements help to bring the outdoors in. The green granite on the countertops, the green tiles on the backsplash, and the taupe-colored maple cabinets reflect the colors of the Douglas fir trees. When you're standing in this kitchen, you feel like you're outside, like you're standing in the middle of a forest."
