About the Project
It doesn’t get better than this for a chef! High-end finishes and furniture are featured in this kitchen and dining area. These include Bulthaup cabinets, an eleven-foot Carrara marble island, Douglas Fir end-grain wood floors, Knoll Studio and Phillippe Starck seating, and a one-of-a kind custom table made of vintage champagne riddling racks.
Square is the name of the game in the sleek powder room. Rectilinear fixtures including the toilet and suspended Boffi-designed sink are reinforced and complimented by a floor-to-ceiling swath of crisp, blue-gray glass tile, a slim mirror, and built-in cabinetry that almost disappears into the wall were it not for the finishing touch of square-profiled, brushed nickel pulls.
The master bathroom is characterized by clean lines and a rich finish palette. Creamy limestone and pebble floors and walls are complimented by rich, espresso rift oak cabinetry, green onyx countertops, and sleek Italian chrome fixtures. No detail was left unexamined. For example, a custom limestone tile tub surround includes a built-in ledge and shelf for hotel-like luxury.
