PROJECT SUMMARY:

A professional couple with an appetite for glamorous entertaining wanted a more inviting kitchen to welcome large groups of friends and family. The clients are colorful and fun and wanted this spirit reflected in their home. They wanted to live in modern surroundings with an emphasis on round shapes rather than straight lines and angles. A circular sparkling chandelier hanging from a metallic silver ceiling is the first thing one sees upon entering the house, immediately establishing a mood of excitement and glamour. The dining area, kitchen and bar are in an expansive living area defined by sweeping vaulted ceilings. An extra large island delineates the kitchen area, punctuated by a striking designer hood. The room glitters with purple, silver and charcoal hues. At the far end of the kitchen, a seductively lit bar opens to the backyard where the clients frequently entertain poolside. Throughout the expansive area, careful attention to lighting, materials and space planning creates a sense of intimacy and welcoming warmth.

2014 CotY Award for Residential Kitchens over 120 Before

The original kitchen was small and outdated. The layout separated the kitchen from the rest of the living areas and made the home seem dark and cluttered.

Changing the point of entry in the home immediately established a modern, open, inviting mood. An expansive new layout encompasses a dining area, a kitchen with bar, and a living area.

The original home was a series of small areas, each separate from the other. For a couple who love to entertain, the layout was awkward and uninspiring.

The dramatic new living area is defined by sweeping vaulted ceilings. The space is visually connected with the kitchen, bar and dining areas and with the outdoors.

A dated sink area in the original kitchen was limited by small appliances and cramped space.

A glittering backsplash in the new kitchen dazzles the eye with intriguing shades of purple and charcoal. Natural mahogany cabinetry was selected with solid flat doors for a softer appearance around the edges.

At the curved bar, a medley of colorful hand blown glass pendant lights casts a seductive glow, reflected in the bar back mirror. This inviting space can be opened to the outdoors through the large sliding windows during parties.
