This Connecticut estate was a total renovation that modernized the space while remaining faithful to the home’s original charm and integrity. A nod back to the mid-1900s estate’s history, the owners chose a black and white marble checkerboard flooring as a starting point to center the entire kitchen design. The custom-designed, burnished brass and blackened stainless steel hood with antiqued brass strapping feels masculine yet glamorous, with the sconces on either side making it a focal point of the room.
Ebony-stained red oak is featured in the island, display cases, and the refrigerator/freezer armoire, using lacquered brass hardware to add a soft glow. The natural grey quartzite counters and herringbone marble backsplash are perfect examples of layered neutrals and proof that pattern and texture can be powerful when done right. Flanking display cases on either side of a doorway are elevated by open rectangular brass hardware, while the built-in banquette is perfect for moody mornings drinking coffee overlooking the herb garden.
