A more space that  contemporary sleek look, cherry wood with a translucent black stain, statuario marble countertops, and stainless steel appliances were selected.

A Family Inspiration

Diverse specialized appliances were requested, natural soothing materials and interesting architectural details were to be incorporated into this large open gathering place. The window opening into the new solarium was artfully lined with an Eastern motif of open grillwork, allowing for light and an artistic focal point.

Within the balcony, island cabinetry includes a large copper apron front sink. The nutmeg and neutral color palette creates a rich inviting environment that relies on the wood tones to successfully incorporate the kitchen into the rest of the home. This kitchen was intended to convey the warmth of a Mediterranean-style kitchen in a functional space. Kristin Ann Okeley

The kitchen’s sleek modern design was incorporated into the overall eclectic mix of mid-century style that was prevalent throughout the home. This was achieved in part by using a dramatic mix of rich espresso and warm brandy stains on cherry cabinets, porcelain tile with random patterned glass mosaic backsplash, and countertops of granite tile and laminate.
