Colonial Blues


Our clients’ kitchen had a large footprint, but the 30 year old builder-grade space did not match the rest of their traditional New England Colonial style home. The flow was not well thought out, resulting in an underutilized space lacking in function. By removing a closet, tweaking the footprint, and taking away upper cabinets to create a wall of windows, we created a brand new kitchen that now deserves to be the heart of this home.

We chose traditional beaded inset cabinetry in two finishes to visually delineate the different zones. The vintage blue toile on maple and the nut brown on cherry finishes give depth to the space which now gets flooded in natural light.

Three oversize glass pendants float above the grand island which features integrated refrigerator drawers and a freezer. A cherry wood eating counter highlights the island’s wraparound seating and brings warmth to the large expanse of quartz.

The fully equipped The Galley sink is a focal point beneath the windows, and its useful features transform the way the clients prep meals and clean up. The second sink is located across the kitchen in the coffee bar, making for easy access to a sink on both sides of the island.

This kitchen, that once felt disconnected and ill-equipped to handle the needs of this busy family, is now packed with function and style.
