EAST SIDE RESIDENCE contemporary kitchen
 

EAST SIDE RESIDENCE

GRADE took a modern approach to this stately 2,500 sq. ft. Upper East Side residence, completing the project in May 2010. With the objective to revitalize a classic space and manifest a new aesthetic identity for the client, GRADE's serene design provides a backdrop that reflects the client's colorful past through carefully cultivated accents and utilizes elevated modern pieces to represent a new stage in her life. The color palette was kept soft and feminine, with textured fabrics introduced to complement the welcoming oversized furniture.

I'm not the owner or builder but these look similar to Elmwood cabinetry. Uppers look like High gloss polyester. Very high end. Tres chic! www.elmwoodkitchens.com

hi Shilpajcl... I'm not affiliated with this project, but we do these installations quite often, and typically the valve is located behind one of the adjacent cabinet drawers. Simply pull the drawer out to quickly access the valve.

7. A seat with a view. There is something romantic about tucking up to a window and gazing out at the city. Fit in little window nooks wherever you can. Try a seat with plump cushions or put a writerly little desk squarely in front of a window looking onto the street, Carrie Bradshaw–style.
