Love the idea of backing up a banquette/kitchen table to one side of the kitchen island. This is the Siller/Hokanson house featured in Houston Luxe magazine. Thanks to Joni Webb of Cote de Texas for posting the picture!
Outdoor: In Dianne Bernhard's Westport, Connecticut, kitchen, Plain & Fancy cabinets with Nantucket-style doors and blue-toned Caesarstone on top pick up the colors of the water just beyond the deck. The ceiling is painted Benjamin Moore's Blue Springs.
