Rich walnut cabinets by Robert Bakes lend a warm, inviting atmosphere to the kitchen of a modern house by designer Alexandra Fazio of Cecil Baker & Partners. The backsplash is hand-troweled plaster, made to look like an old concrete wall.

And what did you do with this walnut? RB: Gave it a soft, organic, flat finish. We used a hand-rubbed ebony stain on raw, unconditioned wood. Most kitchen designers use spray-stained, preconditioned wood, and that creates a uniform, shiny effect. If we'd have done that, the cabinets would have had no life.
