What Houzz contributors are saying:
The kitchen, to a great extent, was the reason the couple bought the apartment. It’s “mammoth for New York,” Eberlein says. But the space was in need of a renovation. The kitchen was stripped of all original finishes. “The window was there, but that’s about it.” Just like in the living room, Eberlein added a plush window seat, building the banquette around the corner so the owners could sit and cozy up with cookbooks and plan menus as they often do. Undoubtedly, the centerpiece of the room is the gorgeous periwinkle La Canche range, which complements the white oak cabinetry. The floor is made of two different colored corks, a light color to go with the cabinetry with a dark inlay. The cork material is cost-effective, very soft underfoot, surprisingly durable and stain-resistant, Eberlein says.The clients collected the two colorful light fixtures in Italy years ago, and the fixture in the center of the room matches the one in the foyer.
