In its original incarnation, this kitchen had a linoleum floor and white walls, cabinets, and appliances. The chef of the house wanted a complete kitchen overhaul with masculine flair. The color of his sports car inspired the new countertops. A glass tile backsplash and all new lighting added a bright contrast. Custom- built cabinets were stained with a complementary warm tone to soften the overall design. All of the elements came together to achieve a rustic elegance.
