This kitchen is not singing the Blues!
With a super open concept space such as this heritage home’s main floor- there is nowhere to hide. Every element of this kitchen is on display all the time. With no space to be dull and a client who was game for something fun, we used Farrow & Ball’s Inchyra Blue paint on the cabinets and topped them with luscious walnut counters. The custom cabinets by Benchdog Cabinetry (www.benchdogottawa.com) make use of every square inch of space. An awkward ceiling height change was disguised with a reclaimed beam and tied into the kitchen by cladding the range hood in similar wood. The warm tones of the wood are picked up with the brass hardware and lights. The area for backsplash tile was large, so to keep it from looking clinical, we choose a handmade, long subway tile which has subtle texture. Open shelves keep day to day items handy while preventing the space from feeling claustrophobic with too many upper cabinets.
