This private home is situated on a private street, right on the water, is surrounded by nature. It was important to this family, to bring in the elements of their outdoor patio and garden off the kitchen, into their interior. The stacked stone was the first element that was continued into the space, as well as the real slate flooring throughout the kitchen.
A custom chandelier was made to go over the eat in kitchen table. Custom built by Michael McHale, this industrial chic chandelier is made up of a mix of pipe and Swarovski crystals. It sits under a skylight above, and reflects colors and light over the table.
The cabinetry was custom designed and built out of cherry wood, and accented with oil rubbed bronze hardware. The counter tops are a rich golden sea granite, which is the same material used in the main dining room that connects to the kitchen where the bar is located.
A hammered copper vent over the range, as well as a hammered copper farm sink, added a rustic, handmade appeal to the kitchen. The backsplash is a mix of tumbled jerusalem gold stone, with a border throughout that pops up over the range area. The border is made up of 2 burnished metal pencil liner tiles, with a square, multi color glass mosaic in the center.
Entrance to the kitchen from the dining room area. Custom bar and storage cabinetry designed and built to match kitchen cabinetry.
