The client asked Allison Paladino of Allison Paladino Interior Design for a kitchen with modern cool lines for their contemporary comfortable vacation retreat.
The kitchen, a collaborative design between Allison Paladino and Leeds Custom Design, is clad with white and grey cabinetry, and high end stainless steel appliances. The client wanted the family to gather for casual meals at the custom built breakfast bar.
People are living today more casually and its great that this family can enjoy each others company whether in the kitchen or breakfast room because of the open plan nature of the space. The contrast between the white glass and dark textured cabinetry creates drama that can be seen from many angles of the house including the more formal areas.
Several people can prep at one time around the center island, another group can be at bar stools watching the TV in the family room and another group can be at the breakfast table, making this a versatile and kitchen for a big family and guests.
