Kitchen Interior Design in Bend, Oregon

EARTHY & Bright kitchen Remodel

The client was unhappy with the space plan of their kitchen, it wasn’t functional and didn’t reflect their personal style. With a new space plan and custom cabinetry combined with earthy, organic muted tones and a focus on texture, they have the kitchen and dining room of their dreams.


When the client came to us they had a kitchen that didn’t work for them. The pantry was so deep things would get lost and took up too much space. The island was on an angle making it difficult to accommodate the seating they needed while also making the transition into the dining room awkward. On top of that the cabinets and fixtures were outdated.

We knew we needed to keep the sink location in the corner in front of the windows and enjoyed the challenge of creating balance in the kitchen. It was a puzzle but fun to solve. The result is an earthy, bright space with plenty of storage for their kitchen appliances, a functional built-in pantry, open shelving and an island with seating for four. The tones are muted but we still had fun, especially with the high contrast countertops. Soft white quartz countertops hug the exterior space and rich dark charcoal quartz anchors the center island.

The details are truly what matter in kitchen interior design. In our client interview we talked about the needs for the wine bar. We discussed how long they usually keep a bottle of wine. How many bottles they typically have and if they needed temperature control. We talked about everything right down to the number of wine glasses that would be on display. We take pride in making sure our space planning and design will work for the lifestyle of our clients.

Our Favorite Detail:

The long, vertical tiles on the backsplash are unique, unexpected and create the illusion of a higher ceiling and the presence of more space.


The dark metal legs on the island were designed and fabricated in house by Iron Roots Design. This unique detail grounded the island and made it a special piece while the metal harmonized with the appliances, drawer pulls and furniture.

“This was our first time using a designer, and we are so happy that we chose Iron Roots Design. Celeste helped us design a new flooring and paint scheme for our upstairs and redesigned our kitchen, all while we were living in another country. She got to know us as people and chose materials and colors that not only matched our style, but also our lifestyle. We ended up with a beautiful, functional new kitchen, paint and flooring, and the whole process was so easy. We would work with Celeste and Iron Roots again in a heartbeat.”
