Winner: Donna Hoffman, Interiors by Donna Hoffman
The challenge was the client’s directive: “Not another white kitchen.” They wanted something fresh, yet signature that danced within a bright, rustic glam vibe, while hiding clutter and serving multiple cooks.
Custom soft gray perimeter cabinetry is offset by twin ebony-stained islands. White Cambria counters provide hard-working surfaces along the perimeter while classic Carrera marble adds a luxe touch on the islands. The stone backsplash provides textured nuance and its delicately scaled size brings a refreshing note within the expansive space. Blingy light fixtures and sleek teal counter stools create wonderful top notes.
Tricked out features abound to include a concealed TV above the cooktop and placed behind the herringbone salvage art piece, which opens via remote control. Twin subzero refrigerators are hidden behind custom mirrored doors. Vertical sliding spice racks conceal spices. Additional twin baking ovens and twin pop-up stand mixer stations are concealed within the two islands. A handsome pantry boasts a custom door, split finish interior millwork, rolling ladder and brushed silver strap-work.
The breakfast nook boasts two built-in bars and the requested elegance of a 2nd dining area. The juxtaposition in this kitchen and breakfast room is a strategically choreographed dance between elements both sophisticated and rustic.
