Elegant Ivory

Form & Function

This family wanted to fulfill their dream of a kitchen common area that would be an inviting, friendly atmosphere for their young children but also feel elegant and magazine-worthy. For this project, the designer considered how the large family could best utilize this space. The plentiful cabinet space and large central island set the stage for endless mingling and interaction, like a quick morning conversation or gathering together to make a casual dinner. Integrated desk and storage space stretching the length of the adjacent wall offers space to do homework or check emails, while still keeping the space feeling light and open enough for hours of play. The neutral grays and whites tie everything together and let the focus remain on the masterful design details.
