This craftsman style kitchen needed a refresh, but was open to an adjacent dining area. The dining room has a saffron color on the walls and a traditional china cabinet, and the kitchen was to be in keeping with that. Susan Currie Design came up with a solution that is welcoming and transitional, but not at all stuffy.
We brought the red/oranges of the dining room into the kitchen. The custom cabinetry feels a bit rustic with inset doors in a rich, orange wood finish, and oil-rubbed bronze hardware. A few mullioned glass cabinets create focal points in the space to show off the family’s favorite glassware.
The craftsman feel is balanced nicely with some more modern touches – an orange and brown crackle mosaic tile backsplash, sleek stainless steel appliances, and bright floral window treatments.
The combination of warm red-orange tones and plenty of natural light allows the space to feel at once embracing and outward looking.
