AtHome Magazine A-List Awards 2015

Finalists Kitchen Design

 The open floor plan of this kitchen gives it the same airy feel found in the rest of the home, but also places it in the center of the living space- and therefore,on display. Because its visible from multiple areas in the home, the kitchen needed to be a functional focal point, so designer Calla McNamara created a clean-lined, uncluttered space that is as pleasing to the viewer as it is to the user. The Calcutta marble backsplash is the centerpiece of the room, complemented by a white concrete countertop on the island. “it was important to me to create a clean, modern feel without losing the functional aspects of the kitchen,” says McNamara, who worked with Able Construction on the project. She tucked custom stainless-steel lined cabinets on the other side of the cooktop, which put cooking necessities like oils, spiced and utensils at the chefs fingertips while keeping clutter off the counter. The look is clean and calming. It’s the perfect layout for culinary and design inspiration.- AK
