The rustic, yet sophisticated kitchen features dark cabinetry, hi-tech appliances and sophisticated outdoor kitchen elements. Here are some attractions from this year’s design.

Wouldn't be nice to just grab a pot without bending over and looking for one in a cabinet below. I love the hanging pot. 

 I think that the floors with the large planks are amazing and the rustic look makes for a charming in warm space

Nearby, the adjacent main entertaining room features expansive open spaces punctuated by a modern forest motif along the southern wall that floats past a frost shrouded staircase. The upper level master suite features panoramic city and Golden Gate Bridge views and is washed with light from three sides. Off the main level, a walk out deck overlooks the redwood covered yard below which provides for the most intimate of gatherings and urges one into the spa or to enjoy the stone pathways among the lush foliage.
