This particular client is good friends with SOPHISTICATED WARM MODERN and fell in love with the millwork and kitchen design.

The main challenge here was how do we use the same cabinetry but not replicate the mood and aesthetic. The subsequent challenge was how do we create a contemporary feel inside a traditional dwelling. The stunning quartzite countertops are a show stopper, the subtle micro subway tile backsplash with a melange of matte and glossy finishes achieved the balance between overly slick and modern and created a transitional, contemporary kitchen. We had so much fun playing up the incredibly tall ceilings with stellar lighting! Replacing the clunky old world feeling fireplace mantle and hearth with Spanish ledger stone, added drama and texture along with an appropriate dose of modernity to this fairly traditional style home.
