Bulthaup Kitchen, room elements by Christine Tuttle Interior Design, Boston

This kitchen, designed and installed in 2008, was the hub of a design I did for a dark, unimaginative, 9,000 sq. foot house in a Boston suburb. It needed to incorporate light and have clean lines yet feel warm and engaging. A variety of woods, stone and metal materials, as well as more fragile materials such as silk (at the windows) and watercolor paper (framing the pendant lamp) add subtlety to a room with strong lines, forms, and space.

To Anita - Sorry I just have to respond to your comment. The poster clearly loves the kitchen so in a sense, she has admired all pieces of the kitchen Ms. Tuttle designed. Perhaps the posters kitchen has only been waiting for the perfect stool and that's what the she/he was referring to.

A question to Ms. Tuttle: I'm curious as to what part of this kitchen you actually designed? It is impolite to take credit for other peoples' work.

And you are?? It is impolite not to identify yourself. Floor, walls, all lighting which had to be ripped out from the former room), furniture, floor mat, art work, curtains and all window treatments, mechanical curtain, accessories...

It clearly states it is manufactured by Bulthaup and there is a paragraph detailing our firms involvement.

Scandinavian Typically both functional and attractive, it often combines natural woods, such as teak, beech, pine and ash, with aluminium, steel, chrome or glass - materials which are all relatively accessible and inexpensive. Design trademarks include straight lines with curved detailing, thin, generally tapered legs and a staple of benches and bench-like sofas with minimal upholstery.
