Lavender subway tile and walls to match energize white cabinets and Carrara marble in an unusual way.
The amazing color of the lavender subway tile in this bespoke kitchen is handled beautifully by designer Christopher Peacock. Pale gray-lavender subways are fortified by the stronger lavender wall and window trim color. To set off the eccentricity of the pale purple there Carrara marble counters with an elegant ogee edge. The fancy edge also rims the custom marble farm sink. One telltale sign of a Christopher Peacock kitchen is the drip rail below the farm sink. Peacock likes to use a dark contrasting strip of wood to cover the joint between the bottom of the sink and the top of the cabinets — this one is stained maple. Maple also is an element, along with walnut, in the checkerboard end-cut butcher block counter on the island.
There is a similar sink and drip rail in my Panel-Front Sink with Drip Rail post. Faucets here are Waterworks Aero Retro.
White cabinets, trimmed with traditional bin pulls and latches, act as a support system for all the color. This is an unusual choice, to be sure, but one which is lovely in its way and impossible to forget.
