This Christopher Peacock-inspired kitchen started with a traditional layout, red brick floor, and polished brass hardware. The flow between the kitchen and adjacent rooms was awkward due to small passageways and florescent lighting lacked the warmth the homeowners wanted.

The new kitchen features warm lighting from shaded chandeliers and two large islands which create both serving and prep space.

BEFORE…we removed the front peninsula that blocked flow between rooms and added a large island for additional counter space. We re-faced the red-brick mantle with white marble (above) and removed the florescent lighting to create nice warmth.

Red brick flooring was replaced with warm hardwoods. Brass fixtures were replaced with brushed stainless.
