Inspiration comes in all shapes and sizes and for this reimagined midcentury style kitchen, it started with tableware. That's right, our clients' treasured collection of handmade wares from renowned Heath Ceramics was the jumping off point for the design. Naturally, it's where we sourced the pièce de résistance, the Ogawa green handmade tile.
Typical of midcentury kitchens, the original was closed off from the rest of the first floor. We removed one wall and as a result, connection between the family room, dining room, and kitchen was created. The new open plan allowed for a lengthy island and better flow in and out of the kitchen and garage.
A repetitious row of white oak slab doors conceal the hidden exhaust hood while offering a sleek modern vibe. Floating just below are shelves to display their beloved tableware, cookbooks, and decorative items. Pops of black add interest and contrast to the warm earth-toned palette.
