Kitchen with a View – St. Charles

Designer: Gail Drury, CMKBD

Clean, contemporary style that makes the most of gorgeous outside views are notable features of this St. Charles kitchen. An extensive remodel removed walls to make room for floor-to-ceiling windows that allow sweeping views of the yard–and lake beyond.

But the beautiful view isn’t the only attraction here.

Bursts of color are found in the kitchen proper: A bank of glass cabinets at the end of the peninsula showcase the homeowner’s colorful collection of Depression glass. Adding a touch of whimsy is a stainless steel and glass range hood by Zephyr with lighting that changes colors from blue to green to yellow to white.
