Clever Islands

Intricate Molding

"This colorful kitchen combines two specialty paint finishes to create a warm, inviting French Country design. A generous island and peninsula provide a limitless expanse of counter space for meal preparation and serve as a buffet for frequent entertaining.

 

"It uses Corsi cabinetry in a Harrison door style featuring Muslin and English Ivy painted finishes. This is a very large kitchen. When you end up using one color in such a space it gets lost, and there's no detail in it. When you incorporate two colors, it helps define the beauty and quality of the cabinetry.


"Most of the time we'll do an island with lots of corbels, fluted posts and onlays, and put a different color on the island to highlight the details. It becomes our showpiece, our highlight."
