A Mill Valley kitchen is serene and monochromatic at first glance; watch our video to find out where the color is hiding.

Jillian Steadman and Troy Young, the owners, worked with San Francisco-based Nilus De Matran to create a geometrically precise space with a disciplined color scheme—white CaesarStone countertops, white painted cabinetry, and a freestanding matte black-stained cabinet unit housing the refrigerator, oven, and a bar. Steadman, however, wanted a bit of "warmth and fun"; click on the video below to see where she hid dashes of aqua, pink, and yellow.
