Lavender and brown-bread is a glamorous, original color combo for designer Kristen Buckingham.
L.A. designer Kristen Buckingham (wife of Fleetwood Mac’s Lindsey) built what we define as a Hollywood Family Kitchen – dramatic, glamorous, and fully loaded with a batterie of blue-chip (Wolf and Sub Zero) appliances, custom cabinetry and a high-prestige mix of features that’s a must-have for the neighborhood.
We can list each of those: pot filler-faucet, glass-door SubZero, antique table, English-style island, then set the timer for 2008 — the year lavender became a neutral. We also might observe that two schoolhouse pendants, a brass cargo pendant (way in back), plus a six-arm Murano milk-glass shaded chandy together in one room is a couple of sconces short of a Melrose Ave. lighting showroom.
Still, the kitchen is as luscious as a pumpernickel-everything bagel with a thematic and distinctive dark-bread color on the perimeter cabinets: Benjamin Moore’s Night Shade (2116-10).
Then Buckingham rocks the room with a brown-black and lavender carpet-pattern floor from Mission Tile West. Pulling patterned tile off the back splash and onto the floor, where it functions like a rug, is a character-building master stroke and an example of how rethinking one simple element lifts a kitchen design into the original and memorable category.
