yestertec & craftsman beauty

YesterTec offers so much more than just furniture or cabinetry. They create stations within spaces for efficiency as well as beauty. Here is one of their latest projects...a renovation of a craftsman styled home in Maryland. Carl and I are in love with Arts & Crafts, Craftsman, Bungalow style. We'd like to design a home that is what we call "contemporary craftsman." Here is the beauty of a home:

And the kitchen...YesterTec's main design area: built for a family that uses their kitchen as the heart of their home. Notice the light pouring in that cozy, yet efficient space, as well as the details throughout the room. "The room also features a center island/custom designed prep table that accommodates six chairs for informal family meals...Great for entertaining, ten people can sit in the kitchen without invading the prep space of the cook."

The beautiful armoire pictured in close-up below is actually a fridge/freezer/dry food storage piece...an original Yestertec design. Incredible. The wood and other materials just flow into One another and you forget you're in a modern kitchen...i just love it!

The island (that really just looks like a table) is more than just an island: it has a great food prep area with a deep sink, garbage system, butcher block top, and room for informal eating or making room for guests. Incredible! I've had a distinct picture in my head for a while about our future kitchen, but i think this design fits our needs so much better.

Above: a great view of the cooktop/fireplace feel in the kitchen as well as the dining table. And below: a beautiful place for your computer/billing/mail/etc. I picture homework being done in the kitchen/dining area just as i did growing up...until my mother could no longer help...then i went to my room to try my best to figure things out. This way the kids have access to mom and the computer while studying...a great combo!
