Materials and design were kept simple, so large statements don’t overwhelm.
A Northern California kitchen boasts a raw metal custom range hood worthy of respect – but it’s not what drew me. It was the island’s over-sized concrete trough sink featuring a pair of faucets from Ann Sacks. This outside-the-box Italian style home is located on a vineyard, so I can see the custom sink working in overdrive during large gatherings. A comfortable kitchen dining space was created by pairing a small upholstered sofa with a zinc top table. Two stools continue the industrial theme and provide portable extra seating but, let’s be honest, they are uncomfortable. The kitchen takes a contemporary direction with cabinetry light in color and design – smooth surfaces lacking embellishments. Combining elements, such as the reclaimed flooring and a pair of antique French corbels with fruit and vegetable carvings with dishdrawers and an integrated coffee system, mix the old with the new.
