Top Valley Design Sources for Windows & Doors

This seeded-glass-and-iron entry door is defined with a brick surround. The bronze bell attached to the ceiling beam was a gift from a friend of the homeowners. The wood-beamed ceiling, wrought-iron chandelier and Saltillo tile flooring are classic elements of Santa Barbara-style homes. Architect: Jon Poetzl, Poetzl Architecture + Design. Builder: Jeff Hillis, Hillis Built Luxury Homes.

Once an isolated room that discouraged interaction and efficiency, this transitionally modern kitchen is now bright, open and cheerful, and a natural gathering place when the homeowners entertain.

Reclaimed barn-wood shelving adds a rustic touch to the picture window.
