In this Green Hills renovation, custom treatment spans toe kick detail at the floor, crown moulding at the ceiling, and integrated cabinet panels for the refrigerator and dishwasher. The result is an uninterrupted palette and nearly unlimited storage.
The six-burner range gets its own custom alcove, which anchors the wide galley kitchen. Sconce and column details add classical sensibility.
Five-piece doors with rails, raised panels and other decorative flourishes combine in a textured bank of cabinets that invites rather than overwhelms. Full overlay doors are finished with both stain and glaze.
Soft green paint, a mix of traditional cabinet fronts (Frontier on the top panels and Cascade for the rest), plus antiqued glass knobs emanate warmth and comfort.
A custom built media cabinet with traditional styling accommodates contemporary media components with a recessed area for the flat-screen television and mesh detailing that doesn’t interfere with signals from remotes and routers. A finish of paint and glaze pulls it all together.
A later addition, the media room/den gets decorative ceiling beams. The wood is stained, distressed and glazed to harmonize with the rest of the home.
Seamlessly integrated bookshelves with display space and lower storage cabinets appear as original as the ceiling beams. They aren’t. A custom fireplace mantle and panel details forge an understated focal point.
Perfect period details in this kitchen, a major addition to a century-old Belmont home, create a 1920s look with modern functionality. From inset doors and drawer faces and stacked crown moulding to cup drawer pulls and exposed hinges, each element plays a role. Upper cabinets with six-paned glass doors and lower cabinets with sculptural footings elevate minutia to mastery.
