Red birch cabinets and well-placed windows give the kitchen a light, open feel. Engineered stone tops the counters. “Some timber homes can be overwhelmed with wood. What I love about this house is that there are notable places, like the kitchen, where other materials complement the wood tones,” says the home’s architect, Randall Walter.
Though the walls throughout the home are painted white, the up-lights above the kitchen’s cabinetry have a yellow tint, which casts a creamy gold hue onto the walls.
