Castle Design created a timeless white palette mixed with subtle hints of black in this kitchen remodel. To infuse an element of excitement the designer chose to incorporate black for an instant dash of chic. The beautiful quartz material seen throughout the room provides a range of soft black veining that adds pattern and visual interest. The mixed metal custom range hood is the focal point of the kitchen and features steel-and-brass details. Edgy brass counter stools at the island continue the brass look. Above the island hang two glass globe pendants from Savoy House. The pendant’s brass accents, simple silhouette and classic design encompass the traditional, modern, transitional aesthetic that is carried throughout the home. Gold accents found in the custom hood, cabinetry hardware and decorate brass grilles at the wet bar bring glam to the kitchen. The timeless interior is a mix of traditional and modern and the perfect gathering spot for the homeowners who love to entertain and spend time with their young family.

Why the judges love it: The kitchen is a very functional, well-balanced space. We love the full-height backsplash. It offers a different look that’s you typically see.
