The overall goal of the project was to create a space that was open, welcoming and truly livable, while still managing to take the users' breath away with a uniquely beautiful design. The designer, kept the traditional 50's style of the home and added modern elements such as Shark Skin glass tiles, Supreme Black textured paint on a cold-rolled steel custom hood, and a slate countertop mimicking a tide rolling in on a charcoal canvas. The cream Brookhaven by Wood-Mode Custom Cabinetry finish warmed up the otherwise cool color palette. Streamlined Sub-Zero and Thermador appliances and retro-style, chrome hardware mixed with natural stone created the modern-traditional style the clients wished to achieve.
