French Vanilla traditional-kitchen

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.

Very close. It is a custom blend - try adding dark walnut and jacobean in 40/60 mix to get the dark, rich coloring in the flooring. Good luck with your project!

You are correct. Marble is porous and requires periodic maintenance and sealing to keep it from staining.

Love the look of marble, granite is so overused, soapstone is a good choice for durability, and looks like marble. You can 'hone' granite to give it more of a marble look- so you have the durability.

What is the fireplace made of? - This appears to be a Carved Brentwood Surround provided by Old World Stoneworks! If so, a patina was added to the surface to maintain the vanilla theme...Looks Great!
