It serves as the homework spot, the family meeting space, and the gathering place for the entire family at the same time as it functions as a home office, meal preparation space, and casual congregating area for entertaining. Making those kitchens truly work well is key, but aesthetics play a pivotal role too.

Copper Fire
Metallic tones have been trending toward warmer alternatives – gold, brass, and copper. Where gold feels absolutely over the top glamorous and luxurious, and brass offers subtle strength and practicality, copper brings lustrous warmth. Rich and bright, the glow of copper is distinctive and dramatic.  Earthy and rich, copper offers a bit of sass in a world where other metals have held court as the usual and typical choices.
