This sleek, sophisticated kitchen, a collaboration between Steven Mueller of Steven Mueller Architects, LLC and Veronica Campbell of Deane Inc., was born to entertain. Two islands afford the homeowners a ton of prep space, and the design leaves plenty of room for mixing and mingling. But it’s the details that really give this space its star power. The details of the white cabinets, echoed in the profiles of the doors and moldings, contrast with a rift-cut white oak floor with an ebony finish. Stainless-steel elements like the range hood, custom-designed by Deane Inc., are elegant, and the chic, angled-in leatherized countertops, offset beautifully by the veining of the Carrara marble backsplash, add another layer of interest. Uniform cabinet doors conceal additional storage, and Amy Vitale of ALV Lighting Solutions used pendant lighting and under-cabinet illumination from Patdo Light Studio to get the whole place glowing. The overall look is comfortable, inviting and ready for a party.
