Kitchen Trends

Inspired by Ocean Home magazine’s recent inclusion of Wilson Kelsey Design in their 2016 Top 50 Interior Designers list, we decided to enter Traditional Home magazine’s New Talent Search. Preparing the entry was much harder than I expected, particularly selecting 10 images that visually tell the story of our firm. It was much like answering the question we ask of ourselves when designing a project for our clients. “What is their story and how do we artfully tell that narrative?” Seeing pictures of a finished room or project doesn’t always relate the full story of transformation. With that in mind I assembled before/after pictures of the ten images we submitted.

Enjoy.

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!

While it’s still hot and with a meeting coming up on Sunday, I sketched the ideas I saw as I was assembling last night’s post. The one on the  far right is a Disaster – left and center are Contenders.

I am particularly intrigued with one on the left. It sort of crept up on me as I was drawing the middle one. It’s an echo of an upper cabinet food in the walk in pantry. I ghosted in the side around the corner to see how it would look. With the right CNC machine, it could even be rounded, as the middle one is.

I had mentioned the various materials we plan to use in the kitchen. Today found a photo I took of what we are considering. The mosaics are from Discover Tile at the BDC. The small 2″ x 2″ tile are New Ravenna.

I hope that by the end of the day tomorrow I will have the glass top table at the end of the island sorted out.
