A Colorful Focal Point

"The cabinetry in this kitchen is Clive Christian Furniture with an antique cream hand-painted finish. The family owns multiple restaurants and is used to professional kitchens, equipped with the best appliances and sufficient working space, and wanted that in their own home as well. But they also wanted to stay away from having it look as sterile as a restaurant kitchen.

"Using limestone countertops and stone floors gave it a warm and comfortable Old World feel. The island top is teak; because there's so much stone, we wanted to soften it with a wood counter. Cream cabinetry also helps soften the space, as white would have been too stark and dark would create a closed-in feeling. The La Cornue range's burgundy color just popped the entire hearth and mantel. We tried a few other colors initially, but cranberry with brass trim really worked well with the cream cabinetry and stone floor."
