Dandelion House contemporary kitchen

Dandelion House

Remodel of a two-story residence in the heart of South Austin. The entire first floor was opened up and the kitchen enlarged and upgraded to meet the demands of the homeowners who love to cook and entertain. The upstairs master bathroom was also completely renovated and features a large, luxurious walk-in shower.

Where did you get the shelves and how are they mounted on the wall?

The shelves were fabricated on site by the trim carpenters. It's pecan wood surrounding heavy-duty brackets that are mounted to the studs.

It's a George Kovacs light that has since been discontinued (though last I checked the larger, 3-bulb size is still available).

Light In Art
We make Contemporary Stained Glass Lighting and Art. Our collections are mostly pendants; The Tupil (Large) or the Rachel would look beautiful over the sink. Visit our website at http://www.lightinart.com/ to see some options.

How did you get the aqua wood cabinet so shiny and plastic-like? - I am wanting to try to duplicate the look. Please help!!

they were painted with a paint sprayer using semi-gloss paint. if you want a super glossy finish you can use high gloss paint, but the only way to get a smooth and plastic-like finish is to use a paint sprayer. brushes and rollers just can't give you that perfectly smooth finish. good luck!

The glass cabinets are from Ikea, though I think that door style has since been discontinued. They have another version available now.

the floor is a concrete/resin overlay, only 1/8" thick (it was self-leveling). The natural color was a bit lighter gray than what it is now. They stained it using acetone, I believe, just to darken it up and give it a more mottled appearance. Then it was sealed with a matte sealer.

whats the difference between self leveling overlay and a microtopping

zbil, the island is clad in paint-grade wood (sorry, don't remember what species. MDF would work fine here, too).

Docho Martha, glad you like the color!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Vanessa Brunner added this to Kitchen of the Week: Aqua Knockout in Austin
Ott put extra-large drawers in the base cabinets, rather than fixed shelves, making it easier for her to reach kitchen items. Often-used bowls, glasses and plates were put on the open pecan shelving, to prevent constant dusting. Ott also used the home's existing plumbing to keep costs down. This limited the kitchen's layout, but they had plenty of space to work with. "Nobody has an unlimited budget, so it's good to figure out what your priorities are and put the money in the items that make the most sense for you, for how you'll use your kitchen," Ott says. "I don't bake, so I didn't need two separate wall ovens. It may be a popular must-have for a lot of people, but we just didn't need it." Sink: Silgranit Precis Super Single Undermount, Blanco; fixtures: Grohe; pendant over sink: George Kovacs, Lights FantasticContractor: Jason Williams, Shoal Creek ConstructionPhotography: Patrick Wong, Atelier Wong
Double up on tropical hues for a bold, zesty look. Fresh lime green or Caribbean blue would be striking on its own, but put the two together and you can instantly evoke the laid-back pace, swaying trees and crystal-clear waters of the tropics. Clean, cleared surfaces and modern stainless steel help steer this look into sleek rather than gimmicky territory.
Bowls, glasses and plates that are frequently used sit on open shelving. Extra-large drawers in the base cabinets make it easier to reach items and to use the entire space for storage. See more of this kitchen
