Klimpt Inspired kitchen

Contemporary artist Gustav Klimpt’s “The Kiss” was the inspiration for this 1950’s ranch remodel. The existing living room, dining, kitchen and family room were independent rooms completely separate from each other. Our goal was to create an open grand-room design to accommodate the needs of a couple who love to entertain on a large scale and whose parties revolve around theater and the latest in gourmet cuisine.

The kitchen was moved to the end wall so that it became the “stage” for all of the client’s entertaining and daily life’s “productions”. The custom tile mosaic, both at the fireplace and kitchen, inspired by Klimpt, took first place as the focal point. Because of this, we chose the Best by Broan K4236SS for its minimal design, power to vent the 30” Wolf Cooktop and that it offered a seamless flue for the 10’6” high ceiling. The client enjoys the convenient controls and halogen lighting system that the hood offers and cleaning the professional baffle filter system is a breeze since they fit right in the Bosch dishwasher.

Finishes & Products:
 Beech Slab-Style cabinets with Espresso stained alder accents.
 Custom slate and tile mosaic backsplash
 Kitchenaid Refrigerator
 Dacor wall oven and convection/microwave
 Wolf 30” cooktop top
 Bamboo Flooring
 Custom radius copper eating bar

We started with 10 sq ft of Tile from Ann Sacks - Klimpt mosaic (not sure if they still have it), then supplimented it with tile from Pratt and Larsons Outlet store, slate (can't remember the colour name) and Absolute black granite. and an INCREDIBLY Talented Tile Setter. Very custom layout!

This is a great example of working with a professional designer. This entire concept, application, material mix and artistic vision can only be found in a good designer's head, like Robin's, no showroom or single product out of a box. A question & an exercise - picture the tile replaced with white 4"X6" subway tile. Then, try to attach a value to what you see in this photo. That's a tough one, maybe priceless. (Note: This, in no way, is to disrespect the person's question about the tile source. It just struck me as the perfect example of the value & impact of a good designer and had to point that out.)

I noticed that on many of the copper counters on Houzz, the copper almost looks marbleized. I actually like that look. How do they get that affect? Will polishing return the copper to all one color? Thank you.

Copper ages organically. It is better to have a more casual attitude about copper, or you will go crazy with maintenance!

The backsplash is custom made, the black granite is Absolute and the slate is brazillian Green. I am sorry - but I do not have the information on the square footage anymore.
