Kitchen Inspiration: Coastal Cove
Brown felt it was very important to maximize the enjoyment of the spectacular view of the pond offered by a wide picture window. She centered the sink under the window, flanked on one side by the stainless Sub-Zero refrigerator and on the other by the Wolf ovens. The Wolf stovetop is placed in an island opposite the sink and the hood is mounted flush to the ceiling to preserve the aesthetics.
In addition to a regular dishwasher, they added a secondary dishwasher drawer on the island and created special drawers for storing plates, trays, platters and glasses.
The second island, which provides seating, is placed closer to the doors to the pool. There is also a small bar which has a glass wall cabinet, a refrigerator, and special storage for grill tools and trash for easy access to the outdoor cooking area.
“I’d say the style of this kitchen is transitional,” Brown explains. “It bridges both the traditional and contemporary styles. There is no crown molding, the lines are rectilinear, there are few wall cabinets, and appliances are hidden. This kitchen is simple and serene with soft gray-blue painted finishes.”
The whole process from consulting to ordering to installing took about a year. Brown always feels a great satisfaction with the end result, as it’s partly her creation. Her greatest compliment came, she says, when the client told her “…if she had it to do over again, there’s nothing she would do differently.”
