Classic Coastal Colonial Renovation - the Anti McMansion

This bright, white, classic “Nantucket” style kitchen was part of the home's 1200 square foot expansion. Built around the needs of a chef and their family, this is a cook’s kitchen built for entertaining. The workspace and flow makes the kitchen as much of a joy to work in as it is to relax with friends in. The bright white cabinets and the cool grey island are complemented by the sea of white marble countertops. The extra deep stainless sink and commercial-style faucet lend an industrial feel to the kitchen, but the built-in banquette and custom window create a cozy, family-friendly feel.

Cabinets - Are these inset cabinets or just made to look that way?

They are frameless, made to look inset. Our cabinet maker ordered stock Brookhaven cabinets and added 1" inserts and custom panels to give them a furniture look, while saving us thousands of dollars.

loves the colours of this kitchen - what type of counter top? what did you use for backsplash?

Thank you! We used honed Carrara marble for the countertops, and very basic white subway tile as the backsplash.

Pendants - Absolutely love this kitchen. Would you share the size of benson lights y'all used. I'm having a similar size island done and I can not decide between the 7 or 13 in lamps. Thank you and beautiful work.

Hi and thank you! These are the 8" Benson pendants from restoration hardware. We struggled a bit with that too, but in the end I'm happy with our decision. The next size would have been nice, but too much of a statement for what I was going for. I didn't want the lights to be the focal point of the kitchen. Good luck with your project!

It is a Brookhaven color- standard from the cabinet company. I believe it's 504 or 505... There aren't many like it so it wouldn't be hard to find.
