The Winners of our Great Kitchen Contest.



(page 1 of 2)

Got a gorgeous kitchen? That’s what we asked homeowners throughout the county via the pages of our magazine as well as our website. And? Nearly 40 of you had the courage to submit your kitchen. We sorted through them all and, to help us judge, we gathered a panel of design pros. And the winners? Have a look.

WHAT OUR JUDGES HAD TO SAY
KF: “I love the elegant and linear simplicity of this kitchen. The square shape of the glass in the ovens complements the square shapes of the stools, island, counter sink, and window. The flush-mounted ceiling lights with the three pendants and under-cabinet lighting adds the right amount of simple elegance.”

PH: “I especially love the details—mini pendant lighting with a crystal harness, simple stools that tuck away, the Verner Panton chairs, the solid surface table with wood base. I also like the square geometry of the sink at the island. Clean, sleek, nice!”

MLP: “Beautifully simple.”

A COOK'S DREAM

Whose kitchen: Florence and George Kooluris of Bronxville
Designed by: Florence Kooluris

WHAT OUR JUDGES HAD TO SAY
KF: “Ooh-la-la! I like the marble walls behind the stoves and the waterfall effect of a multi-tiered counter. I sure would love to be invited to their home for dinner. They appear to be great cooks!”

PH: “This is a cook’s kitchen. What cook would not drool over the wall of Moletini ranges and side-by-side Sub-Zeros? The Carerra marble countertops and backsplash are a perfect fit as are the multi-level countertops.”

MLP: “The Kooluris Kitchen is a working kitchen that puts many show kitchens to shame. The island, though very large, is well designed. The different levels help keep its scale appropriate.”
