Robin's Egg Blue...This Kitchen Heralds Spring...

Color, color, color…Driven by a love for color this homeowner knew she wanted this bird’s egg blue cabinetry for her kitchen the moment she saw it in the designer’s showroom. “It was the first color I chose for the house, and I used it for all the color choices I made for walls furniture and fixtures.”
Designed to the period of the home, this kitchen was created to keep as much of the 1932 Cape Cod feel of the home as possible while giving it a completely functional update. The designer kept all the smallest details in mind including door styles, pulls, “icebox” latches and bracketed molding. All the details harken back to the earlier era. In keeping with the old house feel, fir floors stained in cherry provide some orange tones which are a nice foil to the blue-gray tones of the cabinetry.

The choice of a galley kitchen versus a great room style kitchen was made again to keep with the look and feel of times gone by. In addition to keeping the kitchen as a committed food preparation area, having a dedicated room for the kitchen gives some definition in a home which otherwise has a very open floor plan.
The kitchen boasts 28” deep soapstone countertops, a Shaw’s fireclay sink, a white Viking 36” range with matching white hood, 36”’ Sub Zero Fridge, freezer on bottom with integrated panels to match cabinetry. White appliances won out over stainless in order to keep that 1930’s feeling in the design. The hutch piece with a stepped out cherry countertop was created to showcase the owner’s pastel Fiestaware collection. The wood top on the hutch also pulls in the tone of the floor.
