The result is a spacious kitchen full of light and life. Fresh white plays with wood tones for a pleasant, organic feeling. The new kitchen features a large island with a prep sink topped by LED pendants by Tech Lighting which sport a fabric shade and coordinating wood trim. The darker wood of this island grounds the lighter colored space and is topped with White Spring granite that brings in white, grey, and the warm burgundy of the wood while the perimeter counter top is a dark-toned Caesarstone to contrast with the granite. And Just in time for two adorable and hungry bundles!
We also overhauled the adjacent fireplace...some of you may recall the sneak peek of this entire space I posted here a few months ago. The previously dirty brick fireplace was redone with a new cladding of stacked stone by Sydney Peak Stone. A custom mantel and built-in entertainment center make good use of dead space next to it, continuing the fresh white color scheme into the family room.
The fireplace looks so much more sophisticated yet retains a casual, organic warmth just like the kitchen. We also installed recessed ceiling fixtures to wash light down the front of the fireplace breast, to highlight the beautiful rough texture and bring out the lovely, almost sparkly gold tones.
