“Rather than remove the ceiling beams, I refinished them to reflect the secluded, woodsy location of the house.” —Jamie Nicholas

GOING WITH THE GRAIN Designer Jamie Nicholas drew inspiration from this home’s secluded, woodsy location, outfitting the kitchen in warm tones taken from nature. A matte finish lets the natural grain of the hickory floors and walnut cabinets stand out against walls painted two subtly different but equally rich shades of caramel. Stainless steel appliances (including a side-by-side refrigerator and freezer cleverly divided by a custom-designed wine column) offer a textural counterpoint, while the grays and spice hues in the granite counters provide unity.
