Clever design conceals unmovable ductwork and beams (typical in NYC construction) and offers privacy and definition.

My lovely client and friend needed an update for her all white NYC apartment that was more fitting of her lively family of four. We added dimension and charm to the walls with brick veneer and updated the kitchen with a highly-functional island. A separate bar area was created from a closet and barnwood and iron accesnts were added to the pantry door, island and backsplash.

My own kitchen

As seen in House Beautiful Magazine (“Kitchen of the Month”, April 2012, p. 123), my own kitchen came together to compliment the style of my 1905 home while honoring the way I cook and the way my family likes to live. Lots of open shelves and pot racks help keep everything we need within arms reach and super organized.

Magnetic chalkboards on the refrigerator panels make the kitchen fun for the whole family.
