Crisp white cabinetry and white marble countertops and backsplashes act as a neutral canvas on which the designers layered varied metal finishes and woods. The gray veins in the Calcatta marble is the perfect compliment to the stainless steel range.
The open expanse of the kitchen allows a peek into the butler's pantry on the left and the living room on the right. Gilt iron lanterns over the island pay homage to the homeowners' love of French New Orleans style and are a graceful complement to the stainless steel and nickel finishes of the faucets and appliances.
A classic, clean aesthetic was the goal for this kitchen remodel. Mixing different textures—wood, metal, stone—keeps the neutral palette from looking ho hum.
Lofty vaulted ceilings paired with graywashed exposed beams give farmhouse charm to this great room. The beams also help visually connect the open plan space, running the entire length of the room.
To enhance the kitchen cabinets' clean lines, the designers chose vertical cabinet hardware. Gray-washed benches are the perfect complement to the dark stained wood floor and gray-washed beams on the ceiling.
