FEATURED PROJECT

Berry’s Kitchen

A single woman with European sensibility always dreamed of an all white kitchen with black countertops as well as a beautiful space to cook in for the elegant dinner parties she enjoyed throwing for friends.

Our Solutions

We went with classics on all details to keep everything Old World—Frosty White traditional raised panel cabinetry offered a crisp yet calming feeling, rather than a stark, blinding white room.  We selected a pure black granite for the countertops and then had them honed so they were calmer and edged them with a classic ogee edge detail that was perfectly sculpted to wrap around the classic Shaw porcelain farm sink. Turned posts flanking the farm sink offer a classic architectural detail and mimic the rustic farm table legs which is set in front of the custom angled breakfast nook made cozy with Scottish Plaid cushions and black & white  linen pillows.

We raised the height of the upper cabinets to the ceiling to emphasize the high ceilings and make the room feel grander. To house her extensive collection of Waterford Crystal and white porcelain china, we framed the kitchen window with glass door cabinets that have a classic mullion. Backsplash subway tile was meticulously chosen for its perfect white to complete the Old World Styling.
