A formerly cramped kitchen and little used dining room were combined to create one spacious eat in kitchen with an unconventional floorplan. The all popular island was eschewed in favor of work horse perimeter cabinetry, keeping the floor space open and gracious.
A built in hutch does the dirty work, housing dishes and small appliances, but it hides its secrets well. The paneled refrigerator and dishwasher continue with the stealth kitchen theme -- this is just a room that you happen to cook in.
And cook, indeed. A powerful five burner cooktop and modern convection oven churn out many a meal on the fly. The custom hood made of billions and billions of tiny brass rods welded together shines like rippled silk on an otherwise spartan wall.
Dinner for eight's at the cozy yet wipeable banquette. A vintage fringed chandelier lights the way, and ceiling mounted speakers provide the soundtrack.
Porcelain chevron floors and Caesarstone counters go above and beyond in the function department, while walnut cabinets lend warmth and comfort.
Hit the adjoining den to sleep off your supper on the most comfortable vintage sectional ever. No one will notice if you spill your wine on the way down, because pattern hides a multitude of sins.
Who says you can't be smart and pretty?
