Colorful tiles create a harlequin pattern for a visually jazzy turquoise kitchen.
Who said white cabinets have to be boring? Transform them into a turquoise kitchen since it’s the details that matter. If anyone knows how to keep a kitchen from being bland it’s Diamond Baratta Design. Their signature harlequin pattern is achieved on the range wall by turning four-inch custom-color tiles on the diagonal and setting with minimal grout lines. The turquoise color is pulled onto the counters with French lava stone and glass door cabinet interiors painted Benjamin Moore Burbank Blue. A Franke pot filler provides water for the Viking professional range with stainless steel hood. No detail is left undone, even the George Nelson wall clock is matched to the colorful tiles by Country Floors.
Turquoise spills from the island onto the floor, one delightfully stenciled with lemons and limes. Notice that signature pattern also appears on the ceiling as wallpaper. Oversized molding and trim doesn’t distract from the circa-1960 Italian hanging lamps used in the space. How fortunate to find so many that play perfectly into this stunning color scheme. The custom powder-coated steel island with mirror finished stainless trim has a two-inch slab of statuary marble on top. Its undermounted prep sink accommodates the range side of the room. The main sink is centered in front of a large window, served by a second Dornbracht faucet.
There’s a breakfast nook, too, tucked into a light-filled corner. Lacquered chairs and an upholstered bench accompany a Knoll table. A microwave and handy second oven, also by Viking, complete the kitchen. Is this too much? Not when the results are a design as playful as this.
