3 WORK IN SOME WALLPAPER

In­stead of tra­di­tional tile, Crys­tal went with wallpaper, right, for sub­tle tex­ture. Keep the pa­per a safe dis­tance from burn­ers as she did by in­stalling a slab of quartz­sur­fac­ing on the range wall, below right.

4 ADD SMART BUILT-INS

Floor-to-ceil­ing cab­i­nets, below, pro­vided enough stor­age that she could hang float­ing shelves over wallpaper in­stead of up­per cab­i­nets. Elec­tri­cal out­lets in the pull-out cof­fee sta­tion man­age cords. A strip of plugs un­der the counter, right, elim­i­nates the need for out­lets on

the wall.

5 USE NAT­U­RAL AC­CENTS

Wood keeps shiny metallics and glossy sur­faces from look­ing too sleek and cold. A nat­u­raledge wood bar in the ad­ja­cent break­fast room, left, and cy­press ceil­ing beams warm the space.
