Due to the consistent demand for timeless white kitchens, I find that more clients are open to incorporating color through their dinnerware. I am constantly on the hunt for statement porcelain that ultimately allows for a homeowner to add a semi-permanent commitment to say, a deep burgundy display wall or a blue-green mosaic pattern.
Clients are thinking beyond the practical kitchen table that you don’t mind if your kids trash and want a place for family and friends to linger.
This home has a theme of accessibility, optimism and openness. As a family gathering place, the kitchen needed to be a centerpiece, filled with light, and provide a connection to adjacent outdoor terraces, patios and the pool. The floor-to-ceiling bay windows in the breakfast room help fulfill this requirement.
To enhance the interior placement of the kitchen, we created a dramatic custom light well detail above the island. This element provides a strong visual anchor and literally funnels natural light into the space during the day and soft ambient light at night.
