Beginning with an attention to detail in the use of quality products is the first step in a creating a luxurious space. Finishing with an installation from quality artisans is essential to achieve the desired results. The original kitchen was completely removed and reconfigured for a more function layout, better connection with the adjacent family room, and beautiful, timeless results that better relate to the architecture.


Efficiency is combined with luxury.

A high level of planning combined with well-thought details elevates the design. Traditional detailing and fine custom cabinets complement the existing architecture. Quality craftsmanship and details lend a level of timeless sophistication to the heart of this home.

Proper lighting is essential. The artisan pendant fixtures are not only beautiful compliments to the palette, but provide elegant task lighting. Well-placed lighting highlights glass-front display cabinets and work surfaces. The under-cabinet puck lights supply full integration into the finished underside of the cabinets and accentuate the details in the granite. In-cabinet puck lights illuminate the interior and seeded glass.

Contrast and texture are key elements. The cast stone hood over the professional-quality range and varied dark wood cabinets lend an Old World sophistication and focal point to the room. Planar changes and varied heights of wall cabinets create visual interest. The adjacent family room is refinished to seamlessly connect with the new kitchen.


Attention to detail makes a design successful. First, it’s about listening to the client and developing their style. Then, time is devoted to creating space efficiency, layering color, texture and dimension, and finally, maintaining quality control in the materials and construction.

Cabinet Details

The jewel of the kitchen is accentuated with its dark espresso finish and surrounding mosaic border. Unique yet, complementary details are created for this extraordinary masterpiece.

Design elements are echoed in the rope detailing of the hood, crown and drawer pulls to promote continuity throughout the space. Textured glass obscures display cabinets and provides a textural affect.
