Minimalist walnut kitchen combines marble mixed with Ikea wood basics.
An open minimalist walnut kitchen, created by California designer Jill Crawford, uses Ikea carcasses fronted and backed by custom walnut doors and panels. Square-edged Carrara marble counters keep the counters light. The marble “waterfalls” over the end of the cabinet to give it an elegant finish.
A set of double-tier upper upper cabinets — with glass awning doors that lift up — hew to a design aesthetic that shuns curved edges. The upper cabinets float on a white wall which contributes to the airy look.
The sink, which sits on a peninsula adjacent to the dining room, is a zero-radius Blanco popular with architects. That idea is one dividing line between modern/contemporary and traditional and the sink is paired with a low, hooked faucet similar to Grohe’s Minta. It’s also interesting to note that, while the sink is under mounted, it has a neutral reveal. That means the walls of the sink are flush with the inside edges of the granite, which requires precise templating and skillful stone fabrication.
Designer Jill Crawford also is known for her large-scale custom wall graphics. One main kitchen sight line focuses on her “birds in trees” mural that brings a decorative yet whimsical lightness to an otherwise sober but elegant kitchen design.
