RYE NY - Suburban Sophistication
This unique property had a spectacular location but a dated interior with disjointed walls and crevices. Some significant steps were needed to transform the space into a clean and modern kitchen, Without a central focal point, a wall was moved to center the range, making the space a true symmetrical rectangle.
The goal was to create a space that was clean and modern to compliment the breathtaking views using warm organic accents to avoid feeling sterile. The open, floating shelves with integrated LED lighting were matched to the white bleached oak used in the ceiling and floor.
To allow room for the expansive windows, outlets were cut into the counters and elevate by touch.
The inset shaker cabinetry is classic and simple with bronze hardware and serves as the perfect setting for the continuous, marble single slabs used for the backsplash, counters, and hood. Paneling the appliances gave the room a serene feel, with the Galley workstation and BlueStar range making it a true cook’s kitchen.
The team added a soffit around the recessed ceiling with wood detailing to draw one’s attention to the custom hood. Designed by Kathy Drake Interiors, it is made from the same marble used throughout, with artful veining making a dramatic statement.
