"The hand hewn beams with dovetail connections are the real architectural features that give this kitchen a Tuscan feel. The integral-color plaster walls further bring a Tuscan villa to mind. The earthiness of the concrete backsplash and honed Travertine counters is complemented by glazed finished cabinets. Hand painted ceramic knobs from Italy augment the cabinets. Although the room has a wall oven, warming drawer, two dishwashers, and cooktop, the warmth of the room's yellows and creamy tones overpower the stainless steel, maintaining an authentic look. The skylight further lightens the room, contributing to its inviting feel."
