Kitchen: Transitional Collaboration
This long narrow kitchen needed sleek new style to better compliment its young new homeowners. However, each spouse came to the design process with very different opinions of what to do with the space. He wanted warm cherry cabinetry with rich gold granite and traditional detailing while she wanted calmer, cooler tones with modern edges and accents. Meeting somewhere in the middle, the new kitchen boasts the cherry cabinetry he loves with a cool toned ivory backsplash for her. The surprising element of this room is how husband and wife came together to select Volga Blue countertops: a striking dark granite with blue iridescent flecks. The stone is enough of a statement piece for him while still being modern and edgy for her. The final product of this beautiful collaboration is a beautiful, transitional kitchen they'll both love for many years to come.
