Our First Avenue Project Spotlight is a design collaborative we completed with local interior design firm Salt Design Co. and we just love the way it turned out.
Salt brought us in to design the kitchen layout and provide the custom cabinetry for the open concept space. It was important that the finishes and design were highly functional yet beautifully subtle to balance the planned furnishings and overall house design vision. We worked closely with the clients and Salt to ensure that their vision for a relaxed, yet chic space would flow perfectly with the custom designed cabinetry in the kitchen and bathrooms.
We used Rutt Handcrafted Cabinetry in the kitchen. The selection of a simple, yet architecturally interesting, door style was the natural choice for this open living and entertaining space on the main floor of the home. The surrounding wall cabinetry provides a clean white backdrop in the room. Finished in Benjamin Moore Chantilly Lace, the color is a continuation from the walls throughout the home. The island and accent floating shelves are a custom stained walnut wood. This finish is the perfect tone of warm driftwood and pairs beautifully with the wood flooring throughout the house.
Tucked in an alcove of the kitchen is an ultra functional pantry space, featuring the microwave drawer, two appliance garages, and ample storage. Everything in this nook is tucked behind closed doors to keep it tidy looking at all times, but also making sure everything is close at hand when needed.
Floating Shelving with integrated lighting flank the vertical ship lap range hood and black framed windows. Unlacquered Brass hardware in a sleek yet substantial style pull was selected for the kitchen.
The Galley Workstation is one of our favorite products to incorporate in our kitchen projects. These sinks are multi-functional, made for everything from prep to entertaining through cleanup. We used the 4′ size with coordinating Tap collection in the center island facing the main living space. Also, not a bad view of the ocean outside!
Each bathroom vanity is a custom design, created specifically for this project. These one of a kind pieces boast special features including custom finishes, doors, and construction elements.
The 3rd floor master suite has ocean views. The master bathroom is ultra luxurious featuring a soaking tub, roomy shower, and his and hers dark painted cabinetry which frame the door to the sun deck.
This project is featured in the Oct./Nov. 2020 issue of Design NJ.
