Like many condominiums, when it came the kitchen, the galley layout was not going anywhere. But, with cleaver tweaks, and a tightly focused pallet, this previously poky space was transformed into a showstopper.
To accomplish this, we began by removing a large portion of wall that separated the kitchen from the rest of the living areas. In its place, we placed a sleek waterfall peninsula where the wall once stood. With this simple move, we provided needed definition for the kitchen area, and created a casual eating area—or, a place to rest your champagne glass. Finally, we ran the new dove-gray wide-plank flooring into the kitchen, eliminating the visual stop that had been there with bright white ceramic floor circa 1982.
When looking for inspiration in the material selections, I needed to look no further than my client—her chic wardrobe was the perfect pallet upon which to build the kitchen’s silver gray and bright white color scheme. Soft grays also are repeated in the wide-plank hardwood flooring and run through the granite counter top.
The resulting kitchen, its glossy-white cabinetry, the mod illuminated range hood, gourmet appliances, statement-making tile and monorail gallery lighting, flows effortlessly into the adjoining living area, blending perfectly with the clients’ furniture and artwork.
