Nothing is quite so fulfilling as seeing a dream come to life. Everything that is built, starts with a vision or a dream of the end product. That is exactly how this kitchen addition evolved. What was once a patch of ground on the end of a house, became this lovely kitchen. 

There are about 450 decisions when designing a kitchen; floors, cabinets, vault of the ceiling, how big and location of beams, counter tops, backsplashes, knobs and pulls, lighting, electrical location, height size and shape of windows and doors, molding details, trim details, all of which have to be considered and chosen carefully to ensure a cohesive end product. 


One of my favorite aspects of this renovation was the vaulted ceiling. The multiple windows and the vault create a wonderful open atmosphere. I also love the touches of black throughout; windows, faucet, pot filler, and hardware add sophistication and contemporize the space.

It was really important to me to be able to feature the outside stone wall in the new space. My contractors did a masterful job of making the old wall integrate. Molding had to be carefully scribed.

It was also critical to have the ceiling beams match the island countertop while decidedly NOT matching the flooring but rather make sure it  coordinated with the floor. 


Choosing the correct stains is tricky when the woods are different. 


Lighting played a key role in providing nuance and ambiance in this kitchen renovation. Four large windows for natural light, a full light exit door, hidden uplighting behind the molding on two sides of the ceiling, recessed lights, sconces flanking the stove hood and of course lamps to complete the look. 

I especially enjoy the tile backsplash that goes all the way up the stove wall. Simple yet stylish.
