Ode to Nature: 3rd Place

A kitchen is reimagined with the outdoors in mind

Working with homeowners whose passion is landscaping and tending to their garden, Lorrie Addison overhauled their 15-year-old kitchen to reflect nature. She sourced organic materials—stone and wood—that would complement the old-growth trees and boulder outcroppings outside. Light Silestone countertops offset the dark-wood Rutt cabinetry; a raised wooden bar top made by Grothouse Lumber and walls in a Venetian-plaster finish add more layers of detail and texture. Wooden shelves suspended on a vertical stone column extend the natural palette. Hubbardton Forge pendants in a dark finish complete the picture.
