It’s time to give you a tour of one of our most loved and popular houses we have designed, De Nova. This home is the epitome of light, bright and clean. The materials we chose for this home really play a big part in the how the homeowner wanted the house to feel. This home was completely knocked down and built from the ground up, although there are many spaces that we would love to show you, we are going to focus on the heart of the home, the kitchen. Majority of the homes we design are based around the actions of family gatherings, we want to make sure that we always design spaces that are both functional and beautiful. Let’s dive into this project and talk about all the best features that it entails.
We chose a nice neutral tone Bianco quartzite in with beautiful veining running through each slab, if you aren’t familiar with this type of stone, quartzite is a very durable material that you can use in high traffic kitchens like this one. Because we wanted such a clean look in this kitchen, we carried the slab up for the backsplash, instead of bringing in another material. Our Omega cabinets are a combination of shaker doors and slab front drawers.
We used Thermador appliances in this work horse kitchen. Most are hidden with panel ready cabinet fronts but don’t worry, they are there. Alongside the appliances we used Kallista fixtures in a nickel finish. To offset the scale we threw in large dome pendants over the island. We chose this beautiful aged brass so that it warms up the cool tones around it. To compliment the pendants we made sure to tie in the brass on the cabinet hardware by Rejuvenation. Now when you look at the space overall, we have a cohesive color story. One of our favorite elements that can change the feel of a home are the windows- we love these ones by Marvin Windows. Okay, we all know you are dying to find out what paint colors we used, it’s one of our most asked questions! For the perimeter cabinets we used Beach House and for the island we used Meteor by Behr Paints. Lastly, the wall & ceiling color is Chantilly Lace by Benjamin Moore.
We hope that you enjoyed this kitchen tour of our De Nova project, did we miss anything you’re wanting to know?
