Link to kitchen photos:

  • Cabinets: Ikea cabinet boxes with custom walnut fronts.
  • Countertops: white Carrara marble. We've already etched, chipped and scratched them but they still MAKE the kitchen
  • Appliances:
    • Miele Novotronic oven (I bought a 4 year old floor model off eBay for half's the best appliance I've ever used)
    • Miele Incognito dishwasher (excellent washing and drying, but the flatware basket keeps getting caught on the spinner arm)
    • Dacor PGM365 cooktop (excellent high heat and simmer, but I wish the 2 identical burners actually burned at the same settings for when I'm making 2 pans of crepes at a time.)
    • custom stainless hood from Modern-Aire (looks great, sucks air okay, a bit on the noisy side)
    • re-used our old JennAir counter-depth refrigerator, building the wall and soffit around it to look built-in
  • Sink: Blanco Precision Super Single Bowl undermount sink (gorgeous, and the size and depth are wonderful. It does scratch easily, but I anticipate that all the scratches will eventually come together into a uniform patina. But not a sink for the faint of heart in the scratch dept)
  • Faucet: Blanco Purus faucet with side spray in chrome (beautiful, looks like high quality and sprayer works nicely, although I don't like the way it drips for several seconds after you shut it off)
  • Floors: French "gris vein" limestone floors 16" x 16"
  • Lighting: custom aluminum light rail
  • Hardware:
  • The screen (off to the right) is a vintage 60s walnut fretwork tri-panel screen. I put it there for the pic to hide the room beyond, which is currently the storehouse for all the stuff I need to sell or haven't yet unpacked. It will eventually end up elsewhere in the house, and the room will eventually be a den/media room.
