An alluring blend of colors makes this kitchen in St. Pete Beach a real showstopper. The homeowners worked with Susanne Van Selow, owner of Van Selow Design Build, to create the feel of a large kitchen in a somewhat smaller space.
“We were very careful to keep the color selections light and bright so as not to make the space feel heavy,” Van Selow says. “We also varied the heights of the wall cabinets so additional uplighting could be installed, making the ceiling appear to be higher than its actual eight feet.”
This attention to detail helps to create the perfect kitchen that offers the family an abundance of space to entertain. Since there isn’t a dining room table, the large island was created to include plenty of seating.
Unique materials, such as the quarter sawn oak cabinetry with a gray stain adds character, while the Bora Bora granite countertops play off the colors seen in the mosaic tile backsplash and pendant lights.
Van Selow and her team also installed a built-in desk in the kitchen, so the family could work, plan meals and congregate all in the same space.
