The beauty of this kitchen is the attention to details. A subtle painted and glazed beaded inset cabinet was chosen highlighted with intense French Provincial colors. The diamond patterned stained floor adds a warmth to the kitchen while the ceiling details enhance the elegance. The cabinetry was also designed with alot of mullion glass doors for extra china and crystal display.
For the Vassar Showhouse 2002, a Kitchen exclusively designed by Julie Ann Stoner features Tuscany at its finest! The enlarged kitchen has a 60" professional range with hearth hood, built-in Subzero armoire, and even the windows were relocated in the corner for a view from the copper farm sink. The terra cotta colors and wrought iron add warmth to the kitchen cabinets.
This luxurious Master Bathroom suite was inspired by the Gothic fireplace mantle in the home. To elaborate upon the theme, Enkeboll hand-carved Gothic mouldings were carefully chosen and designed throughout the space. The element of the Lions Head on the wainscott whirlpool deck and in the antique hardware add an important statement of period style to the design.
My clients only wish was that her new kitchen had the feeling of furniture pieces that were recently purchased from a Paris antique mart. To achieve this look, a variety of colors such as buttercream, sage, demin blue, ebony and a custom color mushroom for the Subzero were developed. Techniques such as sandthru and distressed were used on pine and walnut wood for the cabinetry.
This kitchen is my ultimate prize in my design portfolio. It received first place honors at the National Kitchen & Bath Competition and went on to compete internationally in London. The real story of this kitchen is the comfortable feeling it evokes. This home features original beams mixed with walnut and woormy chestnut woods and contrasted with granny smith apple green cabinets.
