Kitchen Design on the Coast from a Maine Architect
The homeowner wanted a kitchen with distinct areas for different functions, including cooking, dining, and socializing, and a large breakfast area. The architect was also asked to design around pieces of furniture the homeowner already had. The color palette is purposefully spare to ‘prevent chaos in terms of finishes,’ Priestley says. That allows the millwork, brackets, and trim to truly shine, creating a sense of substance and formality.
