I’m fairly confident that I say this about every space, but I really and truly feel as if kitchens are my favourite room to design. Not joking this time. There is something so insanely satisfying about ripping out dated cupboards in exchange for something fresh, shiny, and new. They always result in the most dramatic transformation, and while they aren’t exactly cheap, I can attest that they’re well worth every dollar spent, both visually and for resale value, each and every time.
When it comes to kitchen design, there are always so many latest and greatest moments coming down the pipeline, and it’s fun, as a designer, to be kept on my toes. Because a renovation of this caliber can hurt the pocketbook something fierce, it’s not a room you want to have to redo once you tire of it, so doing it right the first time is imperative.
ELEVATE Design Collective recently approached me to try my hand at designing a virtual kitchen using product lines from their recent collection of home accent brands. They’ve conglomerated beloved companies that I’ve worked with for years, so it was a bit of a no brainer. From Pantone to Formica, KitchenAid to Delta Faucet and beyond, here’s here’s how I’d design a modern kitchen, if given the chance. And while the custom finishes designed for this campaign aren’t available for purchase, there are tons of other finishes and styles that are.
The 2016 ELEVATE Design Collective is transforming the look and feel of the entire home with brands including Delta® Faucet Company, Formica®, Hunter Fan, JELD-WEN®, KitchenAid® and Schlage®. They recently held an event to unveil the custom, signature, colour they had designed with Pantone. Single Malt, a rich, cognac-hued tone, reminiscent of falling leaves and your favourite well-loved leather chair, then acted as a jumping off point for a distinct urban loft. Subtly infused into some of my very favourite resources, it has quickly become one of my very favourite hues, and I anticipate seeing it far and wide going forward.
