The Arcadia Kitchen wins “Best Kitchen” at the Westchester Home Magazine Design Awards
The Arcadia is named Best Traditional Kitchen at the 2012 Westchester Home Magazine Design Awards
“Elegant, yet not stuffy; bold, yet not showy,” was the jury’s description of Carol Kurth Architecture’s recent transformation of The Arcadia, a traditional 1900’s farmhouse kitchen, into a beautiful, modern living space. The design team’s concept for the kitchen was to create a canvas of white surfaces that appeared to float in the space. To achieve this, oak wood floors were laid and stained in a chocolate brown color to anchor the space; and the entire perimeter of the kitchen was lined with a continuous stainless steel toe kick. The design team contrasted the traditional, framed-door style with stainless steel panel details on select cabinet drawers and the range hood to give the predominantly white kitchen an industrial flair; the floating island was clad with chocolate brown stained cabinetry to contrast the white aesthetic; key appliances were also selected in stainless steel.
