As an interior designer, it is my professional duty to strive for excellence. In most cases excellence is considered a positive project completion with a happy client, but every designer has a jewel of a project that pops up and takes your breath away. For me, it was this kitchen project.
My client on this project is retired with no plans of moving, and she wanted to create her dream home just where she is. For her, that dream home had to have the large, luxury kitchen she had always wanted (despite the very limited space you can see in the before photo). I assessed the space and the existing space around it, and determined that we could steal from adjacent rooms to build an enlarged kitchen filled with wonder.
There are key elements in building a space such as this, most of which are centered around a good design plan. Within that are quality contractors, the finish of your materials, and how it is all applied and placed.
Materials in this space: Custom cabinets made of of fine maple washed in a grey beige wash stain; cabinet doors with cobalt blue stain glass (my client’s favorite color is cobalt blue),
panels reminiscent of the past (to tie in her love ofart deco); heated, carrara marble floors; white (to tie in with the floors) quartz counter tops with a reflective quality of silver flakes; and a taupe glass tile back splash that picks up everything.
We were so amazed at the outcome, and my client is truly happy. She has her dream kitchen without moving!
