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.
Maybe that's the pattern's origin, or the way it ties in with your particular architectural language. If you do decide to go bold on the floor, let other layers within the space create a sense of quietness or pause so the bold pattern on the floor remains special.
Homeowners that use these special accents to achieve a one of a kind look can help ensure that their investment stands the test of time by sticking to a balanced and harmonious palette.
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.
