This Connecticut new construction project was a highlight for Sharon McCormick Design. These New Fairfield interior design clients, who have 5 children, wanted a warm, welcoming kitchen accented with architectural details.
The client expressed interest in cabinets with an antique furniture look and a substantial, contrasring island. Sharon McCormick’s millwork partners managed to capture the essence of what the client was looking for and go above and beyond with custom inlays, engravings, and even a dropped ceiling soffit using mahogany to anchor the kitchen island to the room.
Taking a closer look at this project’s kitchen allows one to see the incredible craftsmanship in the kitchen island. The hand-carved corbels are classic and sophisticated. The island countertop is made of geanite with a double ogee edge to add extra luxury.
One of the most functional features of this kitchen is the oil-rubbed brinze faucet for the commercial stainless steel range. It takes a weight off ones shoulders, quite literally, without having to carry pots filled with water from the sink to the stove. The backsplash utilizes hand-glazed tiles for a truly sophisticated and regal look.
The kitchen’s main sink is enveloped and washed with natural light from a giant window. The focal point here is a custom-made, hand-carved travertine sink with classical motifs. The sink was pulled forward to create extra space within, and finished with rounded corners.
Sharon McCormick Design is known for its attention to detail, both in aesthetics and in project management. This custom kitchen is a testament to both.
