A Modern Zen Kitchen
Designed By Studio SHK
This project was completed for a young couple with a small child. Taking cues from the father’s Japanese heritage and the mother’s love of travel, Sherry Hope-Kennedy, Studio SHK modernized the space to include serene Eastern influences. The mix of modern and natural materials coupled with muted tones is meant to be striking and, at the same time, soothing.
When the owners purchased the home it was dated and did not take advantage of significant available views of the surrounding hills. One of the most significant changes Studio SHK made to the house was the removal of a 6′-9″ x 6′-6″ structure that impeded these views and also divided the interior space unnecessarily. The owners enjoy entertaining; however the wall shut the kitchen off from the dining and family rooms. The goal of the wall removal was to create an open interior that was a functional and welcoming space conducive to entertaining.
The kitchen design exudes warmth and livability. Clean, modern lines are juxtaposed with traditional touches, while a palette of grey tones is set against a backdrop of natural elements including, a wood planked ceiling, wood cabinetry, and honed marble countertops. The warmth of the walnut plays in harmony with the durability of modern laminates. A backsplash laid out in a herringbone pattern adds a subtle layer of texture while pendant lighting adds depth.
Natural light floods the space creating a zen-like setting.
Master ensuite flooring and tiling choices. I love the texture of this tile. It gave me a Mediterranean vibe, very calming and uncomplicated. The floor tile has a pewter textured effect. I love the contrast. 🍋🥣

Stunning Contemporary Kitchen
A fabulous extension to this already quite substantial property was home to this breathtaking kitchen, a dining area and huge family space, with bi-fold doors leading onto a patio and garden. The turquoise of the furnishings complemented the walnut veneer in the kitchen beautifully. It was light, bright and shiny, but the family area was soft and squishy and totally comfortable and welcoming.
