Candice Olson: A Chef Gets An Updated, Chic Kitchen

Lower cabinet doors were made from a rich, dark walnut topped with a durable new gray quartz countertop, and the octagonal-tile backsplash is classy Carrara marble. A shiny new stain-less steel double sink and a gooseneck faucet are complemented by brand new stainless-steel appliances, including a gas range at the chefs request. The kitchen table is the center of it all, so for Miranda we chose a solid, traditionally inspired rectangular wooden table. Two comfortable, gray, high-back chairs were placed at each end for the master and missus, and white-painted benches with custom-made cushions in a combination of charcoal and cheery striped fabric make room for the kids when theyre home. For more casual meals, there is additional seating at the end of the extended kitchen island, where family members and guests can pull up stools for coffee and a chat. Illumination in this delicious new kitchen is provided by recessed ceiling lights, under-cabinet fixtures, pendants over the island, and a beautiful polished nickel chandelier centered within a ceiling medallion over the dining table. Crown and panel molding were added throughout the kitchen and bulkhead as well as the dining area for an elegant touch, and the table sits squarely on a heather-gray-and-black area rug.
