Kitchen Design

Looking for kitchen design inspiration today, I came across a photo of a glorious kitchen – my guess is Paris or similar environ. While not right for what I am currently working on, it was instant kitchen love. I normally don’t like Ghost Chairs. But here, my first thought was Perfect!!! Cabinets become modern sculpture in the space, acting as a foil for the exuberance of the crown molding. Most of the time blue walls leave me cold. If this room gets evening light, I’ll bet the paint absolutely glows and changes color, mimicking the changing evening/night sky. Spot on!!!

 My regret is I was moving so fast I failed to note the image source or if there was a designer credit.

So if you see this and can help me credit the designer, let me know who it is.

Cheers,

John

It’s been a hectic weekend at the WKD Ranch – especially the becoming a Grandpa part… Still needed to do one or two things for meetings tomorrow. This client wanted to explore how a pass thru window might work and look. Both schemes use sliders that stack a la Japanese screens. I felt they need to be high enough that you didn’t need to stoop to see thru from either side of the wall. Meant loosing the upper cabinets, but I love the clean horizontal line above the counter and the deep 2′-0″ wide pantry more than compensates for the lost cabinets.

The slightly off balance scheme is growing on me…

Have a great week!

Sally and I are pleased to be able to sure the digital link to Northshore magazine’s article about the beach cottage we designed for a Salem couple.

Done on a tight budget, the solution was all about the sue of color. Sally helped the homeowner update the kitchen (See kitchen update video here.), and created 4 activity zones in the great room adjacent to the kitchen.

Furnishings were a combination of recycled family items such as the dining table, Crate and Barrel and Restoration Hardware.

Wishing everyone a sunny, beachy weekend…
