This Kitchen Makeover Makes the Case for Bold Color Blocking

AFTER: The mint green wall balances the deep tones of the teal cabinets and the yellow shine of the brass backsplash and hardware.
So Camille and Carole went about rearranging the space, focusing on transferring components and blood circulation so that their clients living-dining-cooking areas streamed much better and centered around an unexpected multifunctional function: “two back-to-back benches, one for the dining table and the other for the living-room,” says Camille. By putting the bench so that it serves both the kitchen/dining and living-room, it also functions as a de facto divider in between the 2 areas. To further delineate this separation, they put a partition with clear glass and a black frame that stretched from the top of the bench to the underside of the ceiling. The glass partition was a particular demand from the customer, drawing the eye approximately the high ceiling while still preserving views across the spaces.The wall in the cooking area is painted with Farrow & & Balls Teresas Green.
In the kitchen area, Coci Studio even more stressed the ceiling height with 2 different methods: “We extended the cabinets as much as the ceiling along one wall, using the verticality of the area, and then along another wall only used lower cabinets. The 2 opposite strategies have fun with a single quality of the area,” describes Camille. When it came to deciding on a material combination, the concept was for the cooking area to be “a structure of aspects in light, marble, and brass,” Camille says. A white marble countertop with undulating yellow-gray veining contrasts with a shining brass backsplash, cabinet hardware, and toe kick– all set against a mint background, without upper cabinets that would clutter the space. The lower cabinets and a nearby wall with full-height cabinets were outfitted with wood doors, but instead of leaving them with a natural finish, Coco Studio selected a deep green stain that utilized a dramatic color choice without totally masking the movement and organic nature of the wood.The ash wood cabinets contrast with the Portuguese marble counter top, which has grooves cut into the counter top for drainage.
A crucial element of the kitchen area was the ventilation hood, which Camille notes “is normally not the most appealing item in the kitchen. Its often neglected, camouflaged.” She identified, it has the prospective to be a beautiful focal point, “offering character to a kitchen area,” and so Coci Studio outfitted it in the same shining brass as the backsplash and provided it a strong, smooth geometrical kind. It sits practically like a piece of sculpture on the wall, simple yet evocative.The spice shelf was tailor-made with hooks and a towel rack.
The table in the living location weds the marble of the cooking area counters and the metal of the glass partition.
In the living-room, Camille and Carole continued components discovered in the kitchen, designing a small coffee table with the rest of the marble from the counter top and continuing the exact same metal utilized for the glass partition frames. “We imagined this area as an entire where each aspect reacts to one other,” keeps in mind Camille, and the consistency and mix of lively products across the numerous spaces shows this completely.

In the cooking area, Coci Studio even more highlighted the ceiling height with two various methods: “We extended the cabinets up to the ceiling along one wall, utilizing the verticality of the area, and then along another wall only used lower cabinets. A white marble countertop with swelling yellow-gray veining contrasts with a shining brass backsplash, cabinet hardware, and toe kick– all set against a mint background, complimentary of upper cabinets that would clutter the area. The lower cabinets and a surrounding wall with full-height cabinetry were outfitted with wood doors, however rather than leaving them with a natural finish, Coco Studio chose a deep green stain that used a remarkable color option without completely masking the movement and organic nature of the wood.The ash wood cabinets contrast with the Portuguese marble counter top, which has grooves cut into the counter top for drain.
