This Kitchen was designed to lure you in from the entry, family & dining room with the eye catching hand forged wine captain doors, made of iron, bronze & copper. The details and areas of interest about the kitchen draws one further inward with craftmanship, 'not in competition', suggesting oid style simple french country. Doors - drawer fronts made from Knotty Alder wood. We hand finished 9 multi-layers of antique glasing, stain & color coatings, & artistic dry brushing. The focal point is the hearth, a regeneration of old english Ingleside hood & nitch anchors,at the core of this kitchen. But first, developing a lighting plan, in colaboration, a great ceiling must be developed from the top down in harmony with cabinetry. The Island, english country, was concepted to 'feel' as an old eclectic furniture piece , but actually built-in. Choosing a smooth hardwood and a different color, ' to 'de-formalize'. White with meringue glazing, dry brush with extra heavy rub-thru on edge for that time worn look. All elements from conception through installation including the reclaimed old growth wood flooring. We also developed the dining, family room, wine celler, rec. rm. and baths. We gave this kitchen a 9 out of 10 ' 'wow factor'. This project over looks Lake Tahoe @ Glenbrook, Nv.
