French Vanilla

This is the most elegant and formal kitchen Bradford Design has created to date. Yet only a few steps through a paneled-finished interior refrigerator cabinet one will find a less formal, complimentary second kitchen with features such as “chicken wire” cabinet door fronts on furniture-like cabinetry. The kitchen has a custom Bradford Design range hood, an island designed to look like it is supported by furniture legs, and an especially large and dramatic wall built-in. All of the cabinetry - on each wall in both kitchens - were designed totally symmetrical and without a seam between cabinets on the same plane. Integrating the cabinetry crown molding with the architect’s integrate room crown was another design challenge that defines this room. A Bradford Design master vanity continues the “all white” theme throughout this new French home on the water.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Lawrence Karol added this to Expert Panel: Kitchen Color
White on white. This kitchen is in sync with the overall design of the house. "It's part of a new French-inspired home on South River in Annapolis, Maryland," says Brad Creer of Bradford Design. "The wife wanted an all-white house both inside and outside, including the furniture. The only other colors are the limited use in some of the accents. And the only nonwhite space in the home is the husband’s large barroom, which has a dark wood finish."

The grey in the counter tops helps integrate all the stainless appliances. Maybe counter top color depends on whether the cabinetry is painted cream vs. closer to white?
