This project allowed us to fully reimagine the space with a new expanded layout and overall design aesthetic. Adding the breakfast nook with large expansive windows opening up to a new back deck really catapulted the overall impression of this kitchen, while taking advantage of this home's gorgeous Queen Anne views. This kitchen is a great example of how mixing finishes and textures can create movement and personality. The backsplash we selected is a teardrop shape, but when laid in a non-traditional pattern, it appears almost wave-like. The glossy finish amplifies all the amazing natural light streaming in through the windows. The backsplash tile is then perfectly juxtaposed with the matte floor tile cut and laid in a herringbone pattern.

Another highlight of this kitchen space is the custom range hood. The metal hood with strapping details adds a beautiful patina and depth to the space that plays well with other stainless steel appliances. The introduction of color was important for our clients, so we popped in a blue island (Benjamin Moore Blue Spruce), which became a grounding element for the room. Modern wood barstools, echoing the shape of the backsplash, were added for warmth. Simple glass pendants were added to tie in a touch of black. 

Creating a kitchen that felt fresh, unique, and a bit unexpected was paramount for this project. We achieved this goal through the careful selection of finishes, fixtures, and shapes. Finding creative ways to combine unexpected elements can be tricky, but pays off in a huge way.



Words cannot adquately express the amazing transformation of my kitchen after the do-over by the staff at The Phinery.
