It was decided, after demolition, to omit the peninsula – opening the kitchen to the family room. Closing off a secondary opening to the Sunroom gave way to a 48” Subzero and the homeowner opted for a baking island in the turret area – which had been the breakfast room.
The kitchen needed symmetry. I decided to extend the brick from the fireplace side and add a charming fire backer board as a backsplash, therefore making the range the showstopper centerpiece.
Quartersawn oak floorboards in 5, 7, 9 widths add warmth and continuity.
The Bar, where the peninsula and bookcase had been, is now the crowning jewel! With an argyle-style stone top and French brass glass shelves, each element was customized for this space. Refrigerator drawers are hidden workhorses. Keeping beverages on hand nice and cold.
