This kitchen features matching double islands – one as a prep work workstation and the second for entertaining/gathering – both serving different yet equally important functions and appropriate to the grand scale of the house. One of the designer’s favorite features is the dropped ceiling above the islands (which is backlit) which connects and balances the spaces. The cabinetry is a 5/4 thick overlay door in a transitional slant style, and houses multiple refrigeration and freezer units and appliance storage. The kitchen is fully equipped with every modern appliance a cook could want – from a steam oven, wine column, double ovens and a coffee station. The island is a driftwood-finished white oak, and the countertops are nano glass with the exception of the waterfall-edge island in statuary marble. The exquisite backsplash is a shimmery mother of pearl, which adds sparkle and shine throughout the space. The custom-designed enamel covered hood is the show-stopping focal point of the room.
