The homeowners' love of French city style, such as big moldings and formal details, inspired this kitchen's colors and textures. Cabinets dressed in decorative details with a rich, glazed finish give this corner kitchen a welcoming French feel. Dark wood floors and barstools balance the lighter tones of the cabinetry.
Detailed woodwork on cabinet doors and island accents evokes a cozy, old-world feel. The oversize corbels on the end of the island soften the geometry of the space.
Subtle color shifts among the walls, cabinetry, and softly patterned green granite countertops create a soft and approachable kitchen. Double wall ovens to the left of the range make it easy to prepare meals for large gatherings.
The corner kitchen worked well for homeowners who craved a traditional-style room with well-defined space. Sunshine streams through a bank of windows above the main sink.
Small appliances, including a wine fridge and microwave, tuck into the island on the working side of the kitchen. The large run of uninterrupted countertop is perfect for prepping and serving large meals.
A small prep sink adds additional function to the furniturelike island. Topped in Costa Esmeralda granite, the island is a beautiful and durable addition to the kitchen.
The handiwork in the materials was as important as the color and textures used in this kitchen. Up close, the detail in the tilework is stunningly simple.
