We would like to use natural materials as much as possible - this is a perfect combination of timber and white walls and stone. We prefer a cool palette - we avoid yellow timber and instead like cooler (slate, white, blue, sand) tones. The timber plus white granite = Heather's perfect kitchen finish.
This a picture of Gwyneth Paltrow's kitchen in her home in the Hamptons (LI, NY). I think this is from an article in Architectural Digest (not sure) and I don't know who the photographer is :-( I love the glass fronted cabinets!!!
