It’s rare to see a red kitchen with Victorian style double-tier cabinets
What a beautiful red kitchen! That’s due in no small part to the depth of color on the cabinets which were painted with 9 coats of exterior high-gloss Chanticleer (SW2912) Sherwin Williams paint. What a labor of love! But what results and what a triumph of preparation and patience on the part of the painter.
One of our friends sent this kitchen to us because she thought it was so fabulous. We agree. These red cabinets are unforgettable. And let’s remember that red lacquer furniture goes back several hundred years. Here it’s red lacquer kitchen furniture that doesn’t seem overwhelming in this kitchen because of the large windows and abundant natural light.
While some would go neutral or white on the counters, Florida designer Susan Massey opted for polished black granite, which looks very crisp. The stainless appliances — dishwasher and range — are something of a bridge to the white walls and help keep the red in check. I’m not much for an Edwardian style chandelier in the kitchen although chandys have had their moment. The fact that the ceiling is high and peaked — rather than flat — does add an opportunity to use an elaborate light fixture and it did not go to waste. The chandelier does work with the red lacquer and helps turn the glamour factor up even higher.
