my client is a single woman who wanted
to do something super different and
unique for her kitchen
everything was just positioned in the
wrong spot the fridge was not right the
oven was in the wrong spot it all just
didn’t jive well the kitchen was
separated into two different spaces
there was a main kitchen and then there
was a sunroom that had a sitting area
and it was dropped down a level and so
it felt like a very separate space she
wanted to open up the space use the
space a little bit better than what was
happening before we enlarged the kitchen
and made it a more of a chef’s kitchen
for her
we had several different samples of blue
that we were looking at this was the
richest sort of darkest sexiest version
of blue it almost reads like it could be
a neutral black kitchen but it just has
that extra little hit at the end this
kitchen is hiding a lot of good stuff
it’s hiding obviously great cooking
utensils and instruments but it’s also
actually hiding some duct work instead
of working around the structure we’ve
created cabinetry and storage around
that ductwork so that you can store what
you need to store in order to keep the
countertops clean the appliance garage
is a great spot to touch everything away
it still has counter space in there that
we can pull out use it inside the
appliance garage and then you close that
lid and it’s done this backsplash is far
and away the most amazing backsplash
I’ve ever done the client and I bounced
ideas off of each other and then we came
up with this version of twisting this
glass subway tile basically on its edge
and creating Center access points
between the sink and the range I think
this is the showstopper of the whole
because the client had that little
sitting area in the sunroom originally
she really wanted a place to casually be
able to sit and eat and so we created
this little cute faint cat there’s
storage all the way underneath that
banquette that was a custom-made table
based on a shape that we had seen and it
works really well and it gives the
angles to have the extra people sitting
at it but it also tucks away I am NOT
terrified by putting dark colors in
small spaces I actually prefer that
because it makes it cozy and cocoon-like
and I think that’s sort of fun the rest
of what’s in this space needs to be
lighter in order to balance that so we
did go with a light countertop the
backsplash is light it also has some
reflectivity we also opened up the space
in the back of the kitchen that provides
a lot of natural light so we’ve really
balanced the dark kitchen with the other
elements that it doesn’t feel dark and
dreary in here my client is excited that
she has a space that she can cook in she
has a very functional kitchen now that
she didn’t have before and she has a
space that she’s proud of to entertain
and hang out their friends
