DRAMATIC CONTEMPORARY KITCHEN

This complete kitchen remodel was a dream project, in which we were able to design interior architectural elements, cabinetry, lighting, and select all other surface materials. The project also allowed us to furnish and decorate the whole area as well.
Its not often that we interior designers have the opportunity to design everything from architecture to accessories and create a unified personal vision. In this project, it was our very great pleasure to work closely with long-standing clients whose taste we knew well. We could then create the spacious, warm, and dramatic kitchen they'd always dreamed of!

CURVED KITCHEN ISLAND AND SOFFITT
240 Saves | 1 Question
This part curved, part straight central island took its shape from functional need - straight alongside the back wall, and curved where it creates a conversational circle. The mid century adage "form follows function" is still a great piece of advice. I took it a step further and created the same outline for the soffit, and for some adjacent steps.

KITCHEN CURVES ON STAIRS, ISLAND AND SOFFIT
36 Saves | 0 Questions
The concept for this kitchen began with my design of the island, with two straight sides, joined by one long sweeping curve. This curve worked so well that I decided to echo it in the curves in the marble steps, and in the soffit above the island too. A distinctive chandelier is the jewel above this architectural vision of circles and curves.

LED under cabinet lighting makes the glass mosaic- tile back splash really sparkle and keeps the cook top well lit. In the breakfast area, an unusual cabinet holds the tv, phone desk, as well as storage and lit display areas. Just some of the many comforts designed into this dream kitchen.

We focus here on the classy refrigerated wine cabinet with adjacent display shelves and drawers beneath. Thick, black lacquered wood shelves complement the wine case and counter tops. Varying the shelves in size and height, facilitates displaying objects of many sizes and shapes. Also note the long stainless drawer pulls, which add interest to all the cabinetry.

HUGE KITCHEN ISLAND ALLOWS MANY COOKS
3 Saves | 0 Questions
This huge, dramatic kitchen island is this home's gathering place. With double sinks and ultra generous space, many cooks and guests can work and converse together. Its grand size required 2 slabs of granite. To avoid ugly seams, I created a pattern of granite mosaic tile that hides them and is a great design feature too!
