The homeowner had visions of a classic LaCanche french range installed in her kitchen from the very beginning, so it was fitting this was the first selection that we made. The color choice was a bold and eye-catching Portuguese Blue with Brass accents. This 43” range selection set the tone for the main cabinetry; custom-made flat panel maple cabinets in Ice Cap, a true white to brighten the smaller space and to not compete with the range. The cabinetry included panel-ready appliances for a seamless look and was taken to the 9’ ceilings, allowing for additional storage opportunities. A custom hutch in Urbane Bronze with a stained wood countertop is placed at the end of the white cabinetry.
This oversized piece provides more storage and is yet another beautiful item to admire. The stained wood top matches the stained shelves located throughout the room, displaying the homeowners collection of cookware and treasures from her travels. Soapstone White Marble countertops were chosen for a timeless and elegant look next to the bold range. Above the range, a custom 50” dark antiqued brass hood with stainless steel strapping and lightly antiqued brass rivets coordinates the paint color of the hutch and the mixed metals of the range. Mixing metals is something that brings our design team great joy, and this homeowner was all for elevating her space in that way! A Polished Nickel Perrin and Rowe bridge-style kitchen faucet was chosen to be placed above a classic apron-front Kohler cast iron sink. Polished Nickel is also seen on the main cabinetry hardware, while the hutch receives a polished brass finish.
A custom-created tile backsplash above the range was hand selected, choosing the perfect shade of blue to match the range while traditional white subway tile was used on the surrounding walls. The addition of a black, beaded, oversized chandelier placed above the stainless steel dining table, mixed with the structured brass pendant over the sink creates more interesting focal points while maintaining connections to other elements within the space. Lastly, the paint color of Benjamin Moore Thousand Oceans provides a rich back drop to the cabinetry and hardwood floors. The right balance of bold and classic was important to achieve- we think we nailed it!
