Traditional kitchen with rich details

This well appointed kitchen in a lovely newly constructed home, is a class act with refined details everywhere you turn. The homeowner wanted a kitchen that was not “loud” but more relaxing and inviting to the many friends who gather in this home. She preferred muted color tones and a soft palette of materials. This was a client who was nervous about stepping out of her “comfort zone” but was ready to build her dream kitchen.

The hood is custom made from stone and pewter by Francois and Company. Casement windows flank the hood allowing it to take center stage and is well illuminated with long Hubbardton Forge sconces set against a backdrop of small stone mosaics. The island is capped at the working end with aged walnut wood and a small prep sink and was specifically designed to accommodate one long piece of granite with no seams. The sitting area at the island was designed to be what I call “conversational seating” to allow two people to converse with each other without sitting in a line. To maximize storage we added hidden storage underneath the island for seldom used holiday dishware and other serving pieces.

The large space is anchored by a spacious casual dining space as well as a small sitting area. Adjacent to the kitchen is a small pantry and desk area close but not IN the kitchen.


This kitchen embodies the casual elegance and graceful ambiance the homeowners desired.
