What was once a cramped, dark kitchen-dining area in this compact Healdsburg cottage was transformed by adding a full wall of sliding glass doors to bring in the sunshine and create an indoor-outdoor living space. The new simple, clean, white & bright kitchen is orientated to be open to the living area, dining area and outdoor deck. A large island bar countertop anchors the open space of the Kitchen & Dining areas. The modern see-through fireplace is positioned to be enjoyed by all areas of the living space and is highlighted by a new skylight above which balances the sunlight from the deck giving the space a soft, luminous glow. The white and bright space is then embellished with a steel plate & mirror shelving unit, on-wall wine storage (this is Healdsburg!) and with pendant lighting fixtures dotting the ceiling. Glass, mirror & semi-reflective surfaces bounce light and color throughout the space while warm wood furniture and flooring add warmth and color, grounding the luminous space.
