1 This is our gorgeous new Martha Stewart Living kitchen, which was installed in the guest house in Maine, a small 3-bedroom space over what we call the 6-car garage.
2 This space is usually filled with people who come to Maine to help me entertain or to work on magazine stories. Between the two windows are shelves, fancy corbels, and Shaker pegs.
3 The corbels are modeled after antique brackets that I have at my farm. Open shelves, like these are, in my opinion, economical and practical.
4 The back splash is made from stainless steel subway tiles, one of my favorite new materials. The sink is a deep stainless rectangle and the faucet is an excellent one made by Moen, both available at The Home Depot, as is the school house lamp hanging from the ceiling.
5 I love a large eat-at kitchen island and this one easily sits four people on stools. The extra-thick counters are Corian, which are seamless, easy to clean, and very long-lived. The island has shelves on one side and drawers and cabinets on the other.
6 The kitchen is smallish, but every square inch is cleverly utilized. I love this spice rack that pulls out from a narrow space next to the sink.
7 A closeup of that useful spice rack - Notice that the Martha Stewart Living hardware is a nickel finish.
8 All the drawers are well-finished and have under drawer sliding mounts so that none of that hardware is visible.
9 The stove top/oven and microwave are made by Whirpool, from their Ice Collection. They are the perfect size for this guest house. There is no gas, so we opted for electric appliances.
10 The refrigerator is also from Whirlpool. This new design is really spacious inside.
11 The toaster is a brand new model made by Kitchenaid. It is a modernist design and has extra-wide toasting slots.
12 In this usually wasted space adjacent to the sink are two drop-down trays for sponges, brushes, and other cleaning items.
13 The sink is positioned under the counter, our design specialty. This Corian is called Tundra.
14 This is a detail of the spacious stainless steel sink with a very nice beveled interior edge.
15 You can see how seamlessly the subway tile and the Corian fit together.
16 This is another great space-saving device that maximizes corner space. This double rack pulls out and slides over.
17 Another rack is in position to pull out. These racks are great for holding bowls, pots, and other cooking utensils.
18 The doors are a new design for our line. They have vertical battens and are colored Sharkey Gray. The finish is a very special patented process called PureStyle that gives a chip-resistant, long-lasting "painted" finish.
19 There are beautiful moldings where the cabinet tops meet the ceiling.

21 Another wonderful feature is this built in desk, using the same style cabinets and Corian top. This cupboard maximizes a narrow space, which is great for keys, binders, and a dry-erase message board.
