The savvy design of a spice cabinet places it behind an art-covered door.
This has got to be one of the most clever ideas I’ve seen in kitchen design. A hand-painted canvas is wrapped around a hinged door. The door covers shelves used as a spice cabinet. The pair of paintings in this kitchen have a food theme in colors that coordinate subtly with the neutral white, cream and black color scheme of the kitchen. From a distance it’s impossible to tell that the bottom painting is a functional door since the spice cabinet shelves are recessed in the horizontal wood-plank walls. The shelves are conveniently located near the range and, when closed, disappear into the woodwork [below].
Another interesting point to note is the way the quilted stainless steel “diner” backsplash is set into horizontal panels. That marble frame matches the counters, which look like one of the Calacatta marbles. Additionally, a pair of wrought iron sconces are mounted on each side of the range. Those match the chandelier hanging over the island. This is also the first time I’ve seen sconces installed in this location and it would be interesting to know why. Most ventilation hoods provide excellent lighting over the range.
