With Christmas day soon approaching, I have been thinking about a kitchen our designer Anna completed. I remember it specifically because not only was it beautifully detailed, but she and I had visited the homeowners to help decorate their “heart of the home” for the holidays.
To capture the traditional look the homeowners desired, Anna designed the kitchen cabinetry with Wood-Mode’s Barcelona Recessed in Antique White. She then suggested an Edinburgh Burnished finish on cherry for the island and buffet to bring an extra layer of beauty to the space. It was really a great choice as you can see how the center of the room pops as you walk in. The refrigerator also has matching cabinetry panels installed over the doors, in keeping with the clean look the homeowners desired to achieve. Anna was very clever to also match up the fronts of the refrigerator and pantry area to look as if it were one complete unit, skillfully disguising the fact that the depths of each cabinet and refrigerator were all different. She also installed a corner kitchen hutch with glass windows to keep with the traditional and antique look within the room. The glass windows are always a wonderful option to display china other treasured objects.
Throughout the kitchen, you can also see the beautiful small details Anna introduced. One of my personal favorites is the lattice inserts in the wall cabinets and buffet. She also incorporated columns and stacked crown moulding throughout the space.
Anna really did a wonderful job designing this amazing kitchen. Feel free to checkout her designs and get in the holiday spirit with these festive pictures below…I know I am! Joyous holidays to all!
