Island for Eight, A Luxe White Kitchen

The new owners of this suburban home wanted to put their own stamp on it with an infusion of coastal charm reminiscent of their beloved beach house on Cape Cod. With three busy kids the major kitchen renovation needed to be family friendly and stunning visually. At the hub of the open concept home the adjacent spaces included dining, family and mud rooms along with an open office, wine bar and butlers pantry...all located off of the kitchen.

The Kitchens central banquette island seats six on cozy upholstered benches and two more seated diners at the ends. There is table seating for eight plus the back side (second island) boasts raised seating for four more on swiveling bar stools.

The show-stopping coffered ceiling was custom designed and features beaded paneling, recessed can lighting and dramatic crown molding.

The counters are made of Labradorite which is often associated with jewels. It's iridescent sparkle adds glamour without being too loud or flashy.

The wood paneled back-splash allows the cabinetry to blend in. There is marble subway tile behind the range where splashing and cooking mess are most likely.

This lovely home features an open concept space with the kitchen at the heart. Built in the late 1990's the prior kitchen was cherry, but dark. and the new family needed a fresh update.

This great space was a collaboration between many talented folks including but not limited to the team at Delicious Kitchens & Interiors, LLC, L. Newman and Associates/Paul Mansback, Inc with Leslie Rifkin and Emily Shakra. Additional contributions from the homeowners and Belisle Granite.
