Photography by Anne Matheis


This stunning kitchen designed by Tegethoff Homes and Srote + Co Architects flows seamlessly into the rest of the home. The space is loaded with WOW features that stun guests every time they visit. The homeowners worked closely with the architect, designer and builder to bring the extraordinary vision to life. A custom scrubbable wallpaper mural from Italy was custom framed by the homebuilder’s exceptional in-house carpentry team. The cabinetry is all touch latch with soft close and minimal reveals. Other notable features include hidden refrigerator/freezer, refrigerator drawers, an induction cooktop that allows cookware to be placed anywhere on the glass with no “zone” burners, a custom-designed brass hood and custom ceiling cloud with up-and-down lighting. Th kitchen also has many unique electrical features including a backlit quartzite bar cabinet with custom inset glass door that can be set to any color, flush inset LED tape light in the soffit and RGBW cove lighting, built-in charging drawers and flush inset outlets in the countertop. It is truly a one-of-a-kind space.

Why the judges love it: The lighting design in this kitchen is incredible. The softer white color choice softens the classic black-and-white palette. We could look at this kitchen forever, and the mural makes a statement saying “this kitchen is art.”
