The homeowner wanted to infuse character and warmth into this kitchen. The transformation included new porcelain tile floors that look like aged wood, a reworked island, refaced and painted perimeter cabinetry, a new bar cabinet, and new hardware. The lighting and glass backsplash balance timeless beauty with fresh design, while softly shaped chairs and counter stools add to the welcoming look.

The final project in a seven-year remodel of this home was the kitchen. The homeowners wanted something that was true to the style of their traditional Tudor but with unexpected touches. For the cabinets, the designer chose Benjamin Moore’s Evening Dove, which allows the plumbing and hardware to pop. Floating walnut shelves and a custom-made plaster hood add traditional details to the space.

The great room and kitchen were completely renovated in this country home in Carmel. The deep green chosen for the cabinets echoes the lush Hudson Valley views, visible through the expansive windows and walls of glass. A black chandelier shaped like a tree enhances the country feel; a similar black branch design repeats in the legs of the custom acacia table.

This historic home once belonged to Hollywood gossip columnist Walter Winchell. In a two-and-a-half-year renovation, the house was taken down to the studs, and the kitchen was expanded to include a large island with seating for five and a separate breakfast area. The black Blue Star range and matching custom hood provide striking contrast with the cabinetry in Benjamin Moore’s Rockport Gray. Brass accents on the range, hood, hardware, and lighting lend a vintage feel to the space.
