About the Project
For a young active family possessing their own design flair, Bilotta’s designer punctuated the classic white cabinetry they envisioned with an island painted in Benjamin Moore’s dramatic “Blue Toile”. They chose a gorgeous CornuFé range and custom hood in black gloss with brass and chrome trim which the designer positioned as the room’s centerpiece. Symmetrically bookending the range wall are a pantry and double wall ovens. Carrying this black and brass theme into the hub of the room are the black and brass globe pendants over the island.
In a confident move, the cabinetry colors are complemented by different countertop materials: “Ash Gray” marble on the perimeter and Neolith “Estatuario” on the island. Even the decorative hardware offers distinguishing accents, with satin chrome for the perimeter and satin brass for the island. The floor-to-ceiling subway tiles on the sink wall, with chunky white floating shelves in lieu of wall cabinets, yield an open airy vista to the pool and woodsy yard.
This kitchen boasts a built-in desk for remote work and learning. Although this feature fell out of favor, it’s once again a coveted hot commodity.
The hood, island and table are all on axis for pleasing symmetry. And there’s still plenty of room for a separate freezer and glass-front refrigerator.
