Thought I’d do an update on our other French style kitchen. Esthetically, this one feels like it is going to end up 180 degrees in the other direction. Far simpler, with a pared down esthetic – more Continental than American in character. Going thru pictures with our client, these were the images they kept coming back to.
We have gone thru several interations of floor plans and I think this is the one from which we will be creating our final design.
Schematic elevations from a slightly earlier design. A sink was too crowded tucked in to a corner…)
If budget allows, I will recommend Jerusalem Gold (light and dark) as the floor material. Barring that, then a two toned homed granite or porcelain tile.
looking at the sketch, it calls out for a solid border.
I would love to see the cabinets finished in a rift cut oak similar to this sample. Ideally, a little lighter.
For counters, maybe something like this – called Silver and Gold, picking up on the gold of the floor and the lime washed oak.
Marble is always a tough decision for counter tops. As long as it is understood they will not remain “perfect”, it is a reasonable option – otherwise, granite. I’d like to try a honed effect on the counter tops.
Then of course, there’s lighting. We’re very early on in the process. Options for over the island could range from rewiring an old chandelier…
There is so much going on with the design throughout the entire house right now. Decisions to be made everywhere! Very exciting. Sally and I will continue to post as the project progresses.
