Best New Kitchen: Winning Details
Certified kitchen designer Jennifer Gilmer overhauled this kitchen to create a room that is both stylish and surprisingly functional. The use of ebony-stained oak cabinetry, rather than a more standard white or pale millwork finish, is the first giveaway that this kitchen is different. The contrast created by the cabinets and light-colored hardwood flooring lends an element of drama and surprise. The cabinets' streamlined appearance establishes a contemporary look as well.
The side-by-side ovens free up space for open shelves above, which display the homeowner's cherished pottery and other objects found during her worldwide travels.
Elegant pendant lights by David D'Imperio add to the contemporary look of the kitchen by complimenting its sleek simplicity.
