Inspiration from the garden found its way into counters and tile
We never thought we’d swoon over a kitchen with wood-tone cabinets, lavender tile and blue-violet counters. But this is one knockout babe, done up in summer florals that read from cobalt to lavender – a nod to the range of colors found in hydrangeas.
The 4-by-4-inch variegated tile range guard behind the Viking is paired with special order Santa Margherita Legacy quartz Bahama blue countertops as the main theme. Keeping cabinets, ceiling and walls in neutral pine batten helps the color stand out.
The L-shape kitchen opens onto a seating area with an island in between. That houses a prep sink and has seating on the open side. This kitchen also features a farm sink and companion bridge faucet and a hulking Sub-Zero. Still it remains woodsy and countrified – a perfect statement for a gardener with an addiction to Nikko blues.
