Designer Angela Free created a transitional San Francisco pied-à-terre kitchen using soft colors, restraint in details and oversized accents. The custom-color light blue kitchen cabinets seemingly float over the quarter-sawn oak floors that were bleached to a light creamy finish. Calacatta marble and seagrass limestone mosaic tiles highlight the backsplash whereas cream-color counters fade away. A pair of large Hicks pendants by Thomas O’Brien feature bronze with antique brass accents and white glass shades. While grand decorative fixtures (especially lanterns) are overused jewels nowadays, these have such an elegant theatrical appearance it’s easy to forgive this trendy detail.
Substantial landscape art draws the eye to a mountainous horizon framed in black. Simple striped shades, woven baskets, soft linens and an upholstered low-back bench bring texture into the kitchen. Due to the soft colors, this design could be easily transplanted to a modern farmhouse or beach kitchen. Wherever it resides, how heavenly it would be.
