How to modernize a Craftsman kitchen

This Hollywood neighborhood Craftsman was updated by it's architect owner with amazing results.  Ultra sleek cabinets and modern, integrated appliances give the space a contemporary but timeless appeal and Douglas Fir accents like a cookbook shelf, high cubby and cozy banquette pay homage to the wood that was removed from the original kitchen space.  The small hall built-in even replicates an original with its custom stained glass panes.
