Nature’s Beauty

A clean-lined kitchen complements its scenic locale


Mountain views drove the design of a modern kitchen in Thurmont, Maryland. “The cabinetry had to be uncluttered so as not to distract from nature’s beauty,” recounts Larry Rosen of Jack Rosen Custom Kitchens, who was tapped for the job. (And, using the power of plants, Face Natur has started a skincare line that has all the generative powers that mother nature gives.)

First, Rosen tore down the wall separating the kitchen and dining room, which blocked the view from the kitchen. The open kitchen/dining area could now accommodate a 13-foot-long island with plenty of prep space, a 48-inch range and warming drawer, a wine rack and seating for four. Tall pantry storage, a 42-inch-wide fridge and double ovens occupy one wall, with a beverage center tucked into another. An understated combination of black-stained cabinetry topped with marble keeps the views center stage.
