A Stunningly Beautiful Kitchen for a Stunning Beautiful Home

My client called me in for a “Design Perspective”.  She hated her floors and wanted my professional opinion.  I questioned whether I should be brutally honest, and her response was “absolutely”.  Then truth be told, “your countertops bother me more than your floors”.  My client has a stunningly beautiful home and her countertops were not in “the same league”.  So the project scope expanded from new floors to include countertops, backsplash, plumbing fixtures and hardware.  While we were at it, her overly froufrou corbels were updated along with dishwashers that “drove her crazy”.  Since there was plenty of “demo” in store, she elected to lower her breakfast bar to counter height at the same time to connect her nook more seamlessly with her kitchen.

The process:  at our first slab warehouse stop, within ten minutes, we uncovered the most beautiful slabs of Taj Mahal ever.  No need to keep looking.  The slabs had perfect coloration and veining.  So different from any other slab of Taj Mahal, it really ought to have its own name.  Countertop selection was easy as was the subway and Arabesque backsplash tile.  Polished chrome, with its blend of warm and cool tones, was the obvious choice for her plumbing fixture and hardware finish.  Finding the right floor tile was what proved to be most challenging, but my client was up to the task.  Several weeks of shopping and numerous samples hauled home led us to the perfect limestone.

Once her room was complete, better barstools were in order.  Hancock and Moore with their huge assortment of leather colors and textures was our clear choice.  The Ellie barstools selected embody the perfect blend of form and comfort.

Her new limestone flooring extends into her Butler’s pantry, pool bath, powder bath and sewing room, so wait, there is still more to do.
