Kitchen of the Week: Black. Bold. Dramatic.
Say hello to Carroll Gardens – Brooklyn’s quintessential family neighborhood known for its beautiful brownstones, tree-lined sidewalks, excellent schools and hip Italian restaurants.
We tour today a historic 1878-built brownstone townhouse that has been recently upgraded, but has retained its old-world charm.
Now let’s talk kitchen. Black. Bold. Dramatic. This kitchen features an almost all black design, with a white-tiled splashback.
The striking design makes a strong statement, setting the ground as the central hub of the home. No matter which angle you approach this space from, the dark colors grab your attention.
The kitchen layout is a practical U-Shape, allowing easy ingress/egress. So it is easy to get in and out comfortably, and it accommodates tonnes of storage all the way around.
Kitchen cabinetry entails cupboards and drawers, utilizing the space strategically, even having a drawer and cupboard on the exterior access to really make sure no corner goes to waste.
The standalone range hood in the center adds to the kitchen’s strong characteristics. Its defined lines and brushed metal finish create a masculine feel, tying in with the fridge finishes.
This kitchen is almost all black, with a white-tiled splashback for contrast. Having a white splashback is a smart strategic choice as it balances out the black, breaks it up and creates a visual rest for your eyes.
The space has been beautifully paired with some dark rustic timber stools, bringing a softeness to the space. This is certainly a ‘one-of-a-kind’ kitchen, and is sure to be memorable with its countless points of difference. Be bold and make a strong statement, as you embrace this unique kitchen design, color scheme and innovative features.
As far as the perfect buyer for this property, Amelia Gewirtz tells Chef’s Pencil that it is someone who loves location and modern renovations with lots of power combined with old world restoration of original floors and tin ceiling and exposed brick.
