n a wide, sunny hallway, connecting the renovated kitchen and great room, an alcove was the perfect spot for a casual dining and entertaining area. The irregularly shaped bar top allows easy conversation, and the custom, 3-inch-thick granite-top overhang is comfortable for sitting or standing. The renovated kitchen has fiber optic lighting in the concrete counter-top and includes a bold color scheme with a deliberate forced perspective of a galley kitchen layout.
