Sage green dominates the theme of this Los Angeles kitchen where designer Madeline Stuart created a traditional kitchen with a four color palette. The centerpiece of the kitchen is the sage green English-style worktable island. The top is butcher block trimmed with a ring os stainless steel and inset with a prep sink. Shelves were created on each end to help maximize storage and provide organization for small items with baskets that pull out easily. Below the baskets, often used cookbooks are kept in a handy spot.
The orientation of the island is unusual because one short end — and not the long side — faces the stove wall. But there’s ample space for the cook to set things down while working at the range. In a bit of a mixed message, the range guard is made of quilted stainless steel, a material that’s synonymous with American diner style. Quilted stainless is heatproof material and since the range has a griddle it’s a practical choice. Additionally, there are steel clad shelves on the wall adjacent to the range for spice storage. Those connect to a cabinet flanking the main sink and help utilize an awkward kitchen corner.
The bones of this kitchen include upper and lower white cabinets with bracket details plus a white subway tile backsplash. Glass panel doors keep upper cabinets visually light on each side of the sink. But the black dishwasher interrupts the cabinet run and relates to nothing much besides the wrought iron pot rack over the island and not in a good way. All the same, this is a a classic kitchen with an interesting mix of features and details that lean on the mid-20th century.
