As Simple as Black and White

Kitchen designed by Irina MacPhee

Details like the pop-up recessed electrical outlets installed in the corners of the counters around the sink are the little things that have the homeowners living large in this kitchen.

Another critical product MacPhee embraces are Lotus LED fixtures, which take the place of recessed lighting that has historically required significant housing clearance above the ceiling and additional costs associated with both parts and installation time. “These lights come in a variety of sizes and finishes and become an easy solution in spots where recessed lighting was possible,” MacPhee explains. “Their light is warm, not cold at all, and it solves the challenge of making sure your lighting is centered and placed exactly where you want it and where you need it.”

MacPhee’s expertise and recommendations extend to the big stuff as well. Pastiche is a certified Miele dealer, a line of appliances that strongly appealed to the homeowners’ penchant for the latest in technology. The drop-in, electric cooktop—activated by a swipe similar to one required on an iPhone—melds perfectly into the surrounding soapstone and is crowned by an impressive stainless Miele hood. A wall-mounted Miele Combi-Steam Oven is installed over a Miele Convection Oven, while Miele refrigeration and freezer units are tucked away behind custom cabinet panels. The pièce de résistance is the fully plumbed Miele Built-in Coffee Machine that provides full barista service for the homeowners whenever the mood strikes.
