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.
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.
Don't forget about the importance of layers of light when creating a room design, particularly in kitchens. The concept is key when you can combine ambient, task, and accent lighting to devise a dynamic space. In this kitchen, Lambert Pendants work with sconces and recessed lighting to complete the picture and create a cohesive whole.
The trend we are seeing is that the kitchen is the hub of the home for our clients. It’s where families gather not only to prepare meals, but where children do their homework, adults pay bills and everyone watches television and entertains.
