Okay…I absolutely adore this kitchen. Something so cool and refreshing about it. Here’s how this darling kitchen and I ran into each other…
When he found out I had a design blog, actor Chris Maddox asked me to look at his friend’s website.
Turns out Chris’ friend is fab New York architect Stephan Jaklitsch! The first picture I stumbled upon on Stephan’s website is this fantastic room. I asked Chris to ask Stephan if I could post (a little bit of telephone). Stephan told Chris to tell me that it was okay. I told Chris to tell Stephan that I said thank you and to ask about the details of the kitchen…and so on and so on and so on…and here we are!
Now about the kitchen and the house…
Stephan designed this modern kitchen for a waterfront house in Provincetown. The house was built in the 1870s and is quite large at 6000 square feet. Stephan’s task was to remodel and redesign the whole space. The cool thing about the house is that it has two personalities – a two faced structure to a certain extent. First personality is old school and features the original white clapboard A frame structure complete with white picket fence; that side faces the street. The other personality of this home is totally hip and new; that side faces the beach and water. (see the photos below)
The kitchen design reflects the dual personality of the house…the kitchen is modern but classic at the same time. There is a hint of retro 50’s in this kitchen too…maybe it is the shade of green chosen for the cabinets and walls…or maybe it is the style of the cabinets….I don’t know. All I know is that I am intrigued by this space.
Anyhoo…here are some details on the kitchen design:
Cabinetry – Custom cabinets designed by Stephan Jaklitsch Architects.
Paint(cabinets, walls and trim) – Benjamin Moore #601– Juniper Green.
Pulls – Whitechapel.
Countertops – Concrete countertop (designed by Stephan Jaklitsch Architects and fabricated by Derek Oliver)
Floor – Grey polished concrete. oor is polished concrete.
