This kitchen channels both Spanish and Mexican styling with colorful walls, shelves and pottery. The large metallic mirror hanging over the range is a statement piece that brings more light and space to the room. Designer Emily Severinsen chose a deep orange wall color and carried it through to the pottery, which holds a variety of kitchen utensils. The green tea color on the range hood and cabinets is a refreshing contrast against the bold, rustic metal tile backsplash and cultural artwork. Natural elements like the sabino wood kitchen island and wooden ceiling beams add a country look, while the black modern stools rejuvenate the space. The oversized antique mirror makes the kitchen feel larger and more open.
This family of 5 needed a lot of counter space for preparing their feasts but wanted to keep it sleek, classic, and space to enjoy all the high-end amenities, so they added Viking appliances for that sleek, clean look as well as durability and luxury. The extra large kitchen island, with lots of storage and a large countertop perfect for food preparation, houses two Viking dishwashers to handle the large load of dishes this family of five is sure to have. The dark cabinets, in contrast to the white Thassos countertop, give the space a sleek, clean feel, adding to the Contemporary design the family desired. With ample wine storage in the corner of the space, this kitchen has everything that a large family needs to prepare and enjoy their meals.
Eastern-medicine student Stacy Kon remodeled the inefficient master bathroom of her Los Angeles home into this relaxing retreat every bit as spa-like as the spaces in which she practices one of her passions: acupuncture. A lover of all things blue, Stacy chose a refreshing shade of robin's-egg blue for the walls and ceilings, a good match with the white subway tile. A large rain shower head is mounted above the oversized tub, and a glass shower partition installed on a swivel bracket swings back flush with the back wall when the shower is not in use. When the shower is in use, the glass partition keeps spray from the showerhead contained within the soaking tub. Rather than extending the white tile for use on the floors, vanity and tub surround, Stacy opted for custom, cool gray concrete poured into forms made to size. Dark wood cabinets provide visual contrast to the light blues and grays.
