When we meet with new clients to consult about the look and feel for their upcoming space, it’s not uncommon to hear phrases like, “we wanted to get an expert opinion” or “I’m not a designer…” But it was different when we partnered with client Adrienne Rosen, a certified interior designer and proprietor of Adrienne Rosen…
We’ve been told not to judge a book by its cover and the same is true with our homes. This project is a contemporary respite wrapped inside a traditional brick home. The use of the different style tile in the same color maintains continuity while adding texture to the space. Adding high end appliances, like the induction cooktop (my favorite), make this kitchen a joy to use!
The kitchen is truly the heart and soul of the home and can easily be designed to express the lifestyle and personalities of the people who live there. The next entry in our series looks at a kitchen designed to accommodate a vegan lifestyle. A vegan diet, in essence, is the absence of animal products; meat, fish, poultry, eggs, etc. A typical vegan diet consists of all grains, beans, legumes, vegetables, fruit, and the numerous combinations of these tasty ingredients. The windows in this kitchen and the breathtaking views create the perfect backdrop for this nature inspired kitchen of your dreams. The oversized island is a great place to display baskets of produce as well as provide ample space for food preparation.
While there are many great appliances in our most loved room in the home, my favorite kitchen appliance has to be the induction cooktop. It has immediate heat control (unlike electric) and is faster and more energy efficient than either electric or gas. But, perhaps, one of the coolest things about induction is that it heats the pot or pan, not the cooktop, so its safety factor is extremely high.
