and I’ve been in this house for a number
of years and David had come from a condo
where we had built him a really fabulous
kitchen he is an exquisite chef and he
loves entertaining and so the one thing
he was going to miss about his last home
was the kitchen the back of the house
used to have two small rooms the one was
a small enclosed mud room which was
underutilized and then also a small
kitchen and so or the goal very quickly
became to merge the two rooms to create
more room for cabinetry appliances and
all the little luxuries that one looks
for in a kitchen the mudroom was at some
point in time added on to this home the
opening to the mudroom was really the
former exterior of the home we didn’t
want to open up an enormous can of worms
by widening the doorway so he opened it
as far as we could structurally without
having to completely redo the back end
of the house what we ended up with was a
really wonderful long wall which would
house all of the appliances including a
built-in fridge wall ovens pantry
storage and also a wonderful glass
fronted wine storage unit we also have
an opportunity to introduce a decorative
moment so the console table always be
able to house fresh flowers and a little
seat and it really is a way to naturally
warm up a space by making it feel like
it’s part of your living space
and then removing the wall between the
kitchen and the mudroom not only did we
increase the amount of natural light in
the kitchen but it’s really wonderful to
walk into a home and be able to see
through to the back of the house and so
that’s really an element that davidon
and enjoy

I think that there is always a balance
that one’s trying to strike between
being clean lined and seamless without
looking too cold and so a shaker-style
cabinet door is a really wonderful way
to add a dimension to a kitchen without
it being overly fussy you can see in
this kitchen we have added a waterfall
countertop which again helps with along
getting lines and adding to that
streamlined look without it looking too
harsh so I think the coloring was really
important you know having too dark or
too light of a kitchen I don’t think
would have given us the effect that we
are going with I love the backsplash
it’s a beautiful new stone mosaic and it
incorporates all of the colors that we
want to see in the finishes and in the
accents and so I think it’s this balance
of mixed materials warm tones hardwood
flooring and colored cabinetry that
really make this face inviting I have
been here for dinner with David and Ann
after the renovation and David cooked an
incredible meal he definitely uses every
square inch of the kitchen to cook every
cabinet purposely designed to houses
various pots and pans and a couch or ma
and every pantry is full with you know
spices and ingredients to make his
gourmet meals he’s drinking the wine
he’s using the kitchen he’s entertaining
and it’s really wonderful to see this
couple come together and have a home
that they can share with their family
and friends
