Our client had recently purchased a stunning Craftsman home, with striking architectural details, accents of rustic stone, generous square footage and solid bones situated on an acre of lush, private land.
The existing kitchen had a large picture window that provided ample outdoor views, but the dark cabinets and floors prevented natural light from spreading throughout the space. Our design focused on accentuating that light, creating a space that is luminous, airy, and flows naturally into the adjoining living and dining spaces.
The Calcatta Vagli marble that is featured on the counters and backsplash is a modern take on the home’s rustic roots, and the cool white finishes and simple glass pendants allow the outside to spill in from the picture window without competing for attention.
The perpendicular kitchen peninsula was removed and replaced with a large island sat parallel to allow for seamless movement between the kitchen and adjoining dining space. We brought the warmth of the family room into the kitchen with large pass throughs on either side of the stove, and a revamp of the fireplace using the same Calcatta marble to center the room and allow the kitchen to truly function as the heart of this home.
