Classic White

Soft natural tones and simple lines give this kitchen a classic, clean look.  White beaded inset cabinetry is used around the perimeter, enhancing the natural sunlit space.  The rich, darker tones used on the island cabinetry draw you into the room.  The 11’ coffered ceiling is painted the same shade of periwinkle as the walls, providing a fresh contrast and ensuring that white does not dominate the room.  The high wall cabinets were designed to line up with the existing transoms above the tall windows.

Because it was built around an existing chimney, the range is bumped out from the wall.  Convenient pull-out spice racks flank the range bump-out, providing useful storage and a transition back to proper cabinet depth.

The gray tones of the limestone mosaic backsplash soften the starkness of the white cabinetry, and provide a textural contrast to the granite countertops.
