For this cozy kitchen design, designer Peter Salerno mixes style and function. He infuses the space with classic cottage style through beadboard, floral and plaid patterns and glass cabinet doors. The true statement piece of the space is the large island that features bar seating, a second sink and tons of counter space for food preparation.
We caught up with Peter to find out about his favorite design elements of the kitchen.
The objective was to have a natural flow from the kitchen to the breakfast area to the butler's pantry.
The stove area is the first element seen upon entering the room and so it needed something special. A simple yet bold hearth surrounding the commercial stove was created. The backsplash is a combination of Carrara marble and beadboard.
The island features beadboard on three sides and its front overhang is supported by two five-feet columns. The island has a sink and a dishwasher to create a second preparation area that can be used in conjunction with the commercial stove. The island's countertop edges were doubled to give it a greater definition and more substance.
The two hanging light fixtures are antiques and have a pulley system built in so the client can bring them closer to the counter for a more intense light source.
