For a family who wanted a fresh, airy space where they could hang out together and entertain, designers went with all white in the kitchen. Countertops are quartzite and appliances (like the Miele double oven) are chef- grade.
On the ground floor of the townhouse is this gourmet eat-in kitchen. The appliances are all chef-grade: Sub-Zero, Miele, Wolf. The countertops are marble. And the back wall opens directly onto a lovely garden patio.
To give this small kitchen chef-grade efficiency, the designers extended the countertop the full width of the room and installed two under-the-counter refrigerators. Low-iron glass shelving doesn't block the natural light or the view. Appliances are by Miele.
This European-inspired kitchen features the latest in appliances. The Miele coffee center and wine refrigerator are the focal points and flank the sleek Poggenpohl cabinetry. The Swarovski crystal chandelier brings shine to the space, while the wood stools and wood-like porcelain tile flooring accents bring visual warmth. The final touch is LED lighting underneath the kitchen island that highlights the quartz waterfall countertop.
This modern Tuscan-style kitchen pays homage to the traditional details associated with the design through its use of color, architecture and accessories. Wood rafters help enclose the kitchen, while exposing the cathedral ceilings and intricate, artistic murals along the walls and ceilings. Simple wrought iron fixtures showcase Old World appeal with a contemporary edge. With massive wooden beams, terra-cotta tiles from Italy and hand-painted frescoes of Italian vineyards — this kitchen cooks up Italian flavor from floor to ceiling. But it's the bread warmer and wine cellar that stores up to 1,800 bottles that make this an Italian paradise. Appliances include two Miele dishwashers, a vegetable steamer, a built-in espresso machine and a five-burner Thermador stove.
