Modern Mountain Kitchen

red base cabinets - bold red Shaker style cabinet mountain kitchen by John Oetgen and Sally Ann Sullivan via AtticmagRed base cabinets made a strong design statement in a a kitchen space with complex aesthetics.

Designer John Oetgen and kitchen designer Sally Ann Sullivan put a modern twist on a mountain aesthetics by using vibrant red base cabinets in the kitchen of a contemporary but rustic home. As it happens, the kitchen was the darkest room in the house. To brighten things, the lipstick red hue was pulled from the living area of the open plan, setting the foundation for the bold look on the island and perimeter cabinets — which happen to match the knobs on the Wolf range. Oetgen has also used red prominently for interiors of a home he designed in Telluride, Colorado. While color grabs attention for the red base cabinets this kitchen has a  definite twist. Mellow Shaker style pine upper cabinets — and pine panels on the refrigerator — create a complex duality. The upper tier is rustic and feel authentic while base cabinets look updated.  Sullivan believes that using a simple door style allows the color and finish to carry the clean, uncluttered look. As an added accent, a muted green marble was used on the counters and backsplash, inspired by natural surroundings.

    Although I’m not sure of the orange/red with the green, I fully respect someone else’s love for that combo, and REALLY like the neatly painted bases with the rustic uppers and details. It’s a gorgeous kitchen.

    Be still my heart! I have always had and loved red kitchens but this is a whole new take. I love the sophisticated look of it!
