Saving Daylight Time

Despite its reliance on the color of snow, there's something about this solid-yet-bright kitchen that suggests that winter is finally on the wane. Minimal shadows darken its surfaces. Orienting the wood grain vertically—especially on the back wall, where it reaches without repeat up to the ceiling—is as uplifing to the spirit as it is to the space and, ultimately, the eye. The ratio of organic materials to cold, hard steel is also indicative [to my cabin-feverish mind, at least] of the coming reemergence of nature.
