Two reflective surfaces — red lacquer cabinets and glass tile — double the pop of this color scheme
New York City apartments are notoriously small and often lack ventilation. That’s why an alternative approach to outfitting a postage stamp kitchen is often required. The approach to creating this glamorous red and white kitchen was to create reflective surfaces that would catch the light and add a little glamour to a space that, in New York, is sometimes used very little. That was done by installing exuberant red lacquer cabinets, designed by D’Aquino Monaco Inc., in NY. To balance the bold red cabinets, iridescent glass-mosaic tile (the color is “daffodil”) was used to line the walls — counter top to ceiling. That provided a heat-roof fall for the Thermador pro range, it eliminated the need to ever paint the kitchen again, and it created a very dressy look for this kitchen. Wisely, too, the designer didn’t try to cram upper cabinets into the open spaces on each side of the matching Thermador chimney hood. That becomes sculptural against the mosaic wall and the kitchen takes on a very airy quality — no mean feat for such a small space. Most of all, though, this kitchen shows the power of color on kitchen cabinets and how color can be used to create a certain degree of formality. The tile is from Town & Country Flooring.
