Sleepy Hollow TransitionalTransitional Kitchen, New York
A young family moving from NYC tackled a lightning fast makeover of their new colonial revival home before the arrival of their second child. The kitchen area was quite spacious but needed a facelift and new layout. Painted cabinetry matched to Benjamin Moore’s Light Pewter is balanced by grey glazed rift oak cabinetry on the island. Shiplap paneling on the island and cabinet lend a slightly contemporary edge. White bronze hardware by Schaub & Co. in a contemporary bar shape offer clean lines with some texture in a warm metallic tone.
White Marble countertops in “Alpine Mist” create a harmonious color palette while the pale blue/grey Waterworks backsplash adds a touch of color.

What Houzz contributors are saying:
Ideas for Moving ForwardKeep it beautiful. Focus on what you want to use the kitchen counter for, and do what you can to emphasize that purpose, beautifully. Want to be able to eat breakfast at the counter? Set out fresh place settings and a small vase of blooms. Hoping for a clean, clear space for cooking delicious feasts? Wipe the counter and set out a few useful items — perhaps a thick cutting board or a bowl of fresh farmers market produce.
The homeowners weren’t big fans of backsplashes, and they spent hours with Robertson looking at “a million different tiles,” she says. But when the couple saw the pale blue ceramic tile by Waterworks, “she was sold,” Robertson says.
