An extra sink in this Californian kitchen by Reath Design also doubles as a place where flowers can be arranged thanks to a large work corner positioned in a bright corner.

The skirt, the exposed bricks, the terracotta tiles and the suspension lamp give the modern marble mode a country atmosphere.
