I absolutely love this design. Cabinetry won’t be arriving until the fall [thanks COVID], but in the meantime, I’m sharing the design concept + material selections below!
Large Hicks Pendant in Polished Nickel, Quantity: 3
The necessary nautical touch to this classic New England kitchen. These will for sure be the focal point of the space.
Boston Library Light in Polished Nickel, Quantity: 3
Sconces over a wide kitchen window are a must. We are doing a triple casement window, so there will be one centered on each pane!
Cabinet Maker’s Picture Light in Polished Nickel, Quantity: 2
One of the first things you see when entering the home is a long shiplap wall that runs along the island. I’d love to add some framed black + white family photos here. A simple way to elevate a photo wall is to add picture lights above each frame. This fixture is one of my favorites for this application!
4″ Vernon Bin Pull in Polished Nickel, Quantity: 21
One of my favorites! These will be installed on all drawers.
Massey Cabinet Knob in Polished Nickel, Quantity: 20
Another timeless choice for hardware. These will be installed on all doors.
3×12 Strait Ceramic Subway Tile in White, Quantity: 9 boxes [Order a single box first to make sure you like it. If so, come back here to order 8 additional boxes].
We are going to the ceiling with tile in this kitchen, so our selection couldn’t be too busy, but naturally – not too boring! This handmade tile is a fun twist on a classic subway. It will add texture + dimension to the space.
*Please also order 9 pieces of the .6×12 Ceramic Tile Trim in White to finish off those exposed ends!*
Ikon 11×11 Picture Frame in White, Quantity: 2
Family photos are important to my clients + this is the perfect way to display them. I love the oversized mat + overall 25″ square size. They’ll look amazing below the picture lights.
I mean…. are words necessary?
If you’re looking for a traditional pull-down faucet in polished nickel, this collection hands-down gets you the most for your dollar.
Vintage Air Switch in Polished Nickel
My client purchased this garbage disposal for their main sink, so we decided on this traditional air switch. Air switches are just counter-mounted buttons that activate your garbage disposal. They’re much prettier than a wall switch! This style is available only through dealers, but here is a similar option.
The first thing I noticed about this refrigerator was the handle style. Not quite sure why, but I am fully obsessed.
Pro tip: Thermador is owned by Bosch. As you can see from this handle style [same as the fridge above], you can mix + match Thermador [high-end] + Bosch [mid-range] pieces with a congruent look!
This is the panel-ready model, meaning it comes naked [no stainless door] + I order a custom wood panel that gets applied to the front. This way, it blends right in with the cabinetry!
This 18″ wide beverage fridge was a perfect fit for the wet bar. It has two full-extension wine racks + flexible space on top for alllllll the drinks + garnishes.
My holy grail microwave for small spaces! This kitchen is NARROW. Our microwave cubby is only ~14″ deep. This micro only needs 13″ of depth + is still 1.1 cu. ft. with a turntable! I think my excitement about this makes me a design nerd. #sorrynotsorry
Crystal Cabinetry Inset in “Designer White” [Biscayne Door]
I’m definitely an inset, shaker snob. It’s New England’s fault, not mine!
IQ Calacatta Zoya Quartz 3cm
So perfect for this kitchen! This will be installed on the island, perimeter + wet bar.
3″ American Black Walnut End Grain 1-3/4″ Offset Square
Pro tip: do ANYTHING to avoid a countertop seam in an island. This island is too long for a single quartz slab, so we added butcher block on the end! I love the character this adds to a kitchen.
There’s existing shiplap on the living room walls. Since we’re removing the wall between the kitchen + living room, it only makes sense to run this wall treatment throughout the kitchen as well!
The flooring in 90% of the homes I enter, this will be ran throughout the kitchen + stained to match the surrounding rooms.
That’s all for today! What do you think? I can’t wait to see this space completed!
