About the Project
Contemporary took a 180 turn with this warm trio of white, light wood and black, instead of a stark all-white color scheme. Perimeter bases and uppers flanking the sink are painted “Simple White”; the island and tall cabinets are light-stained rift cut white oak; the hood and its accompanying uppers are painted black. Slab doors get a fresh take with a narrow square trim encircling the doors and drawers. The focal point is a wide brass strip around the hood. Brass is repeated in the honey bronze pulls and T-shaped knobs. Black-framed wall cabinets have white interiors with LED light trips on the sides; tall cabinets with glass doors received matching rift cut white oak interiors. Calacatta-patterned quartz accents the perimeter tops, the double waterfall island, and the slab backsplashes.
The workhorse of this kitchen is the wall of tall white oak cabinets. There’s a desk with open storage above; closed pantries with rollouts; glass-fronted cabinets displaying serving pieces and collectables; a built-in oven and convection-microwave; and a 48” stainless steel refrigerator. The island does its part as well, with a prep sink, paneled dishwasher, and room for four stools. Stainless undermount sinks feature matte black faucets highlighted with brass.
