PROJECT SUMMARY:

Blending modern and classic elements, along with cheerful pops of goldenrod, this bright open kitchen holds timeless appeal. The client had been waiting patiently for the opportune moment in her family's financial planning to remodel. She had saved favorite magazine clippings and photos for years, had a very definite idea of what she wanted, and was enthusiastic about participating in the design process. A wall was removed to make the dining room and kitchen one open space, vastly increasing the natural light and openness of the space. Pops of color, including goldenrod fabric on the island stools and window treatments, add definition and liveliness to the space. The large island was painted in dove gray, an imaginative choice for a neutral that was selected for its ability to work with both warm and cool colors. A glittering expanse of tile on the back wall makes an impressive visual statement in this bright, welcoming kitchen, ideally suited for festive gatherings.

The existing kitchen was bland and crowded and was cut off from the rest of the home.

Once the wall separating the dining area and kitchen was removed, the space significantly improved in functionality, light, flow and navigation.

For a client who spends so much time preparing, cooking and serving meals, the existing cooktop in a dark space was always a frustration.

A dazzling wall of tile reflects light and makes a memorable, conversation-starting design statement. The glamorous glitter is reflected in the island cooktop where the client can now more easily prepare the large meals she so enjoys preparing and sharing.

The entire level of the home shared by the kitchen was a series of spaces that had little relationship to each other. The space felt cluttered and busy.

The line of sight and navigation from the front door entry to the welcoming backyard is clean and open, ideal for clients who entertain large groups of family and friends.
