Modern Kitchen Fun

I've been meaning to post pics of this kitchen for a while.  I just adore the way it all came together.  This is another great design by Lorin Hill Architects, of the English Tudor house fame.
The house is classic mid-century modern, but a previous owner had poorly installed a cheesy Home Depot kitchen without permits.  At the "encouragement" of city officials, that room was torn out and the resulting kitchen has changed the whole feel of the home. 

The slab cherry cabinets and white granite lighten the weight of oversized pot drawers, and the orange accent wall (including door and trim) adds an element of playfulness while slyly downplaying the galley layout of the space.
Large rectangular floor tiles give the feel of stained concrete and heat registers run through the cabinet toekicks keep the floor area clear.  Period light fixtures from the underground favorite Schoolhouse Electric Company top off this great mid-century kitchen makeover.

This kitchen is awesome even it is simple yet modernize by its design. Can you have more photos of it, because I’m planning to remodel my kitchen? By the way, thank you for such wonderful idea that makes my brain visualize what design would be appropriate for my new kitchen.

I love the simple feel of this small kitchen. The space feels super open and inviting and the cabinetry is beautiful. The accent wall is amazing and really adds some personality to the space as a whole. Beautiful finished product!
