KITSCHY KITCHEN TURNS FRENCH GLAM

In typical 80s fashion, the previous kitchen was
done in Art Deco style with lots of curves, soffits,
blond wood and a peninsula where the sink was
housed. Because of the client's love for France
- her children even go to a French school - she
wanted her kitchen to emulate one of the country's
iconic bistros.
Thelen incorporated a mixture of white-painted, maple-inset cabinets with exposed hinges and
curved toe kicks, as well as open, rough-sawn poplar shelves with a weathered stain. Stainless steel
countertops and a Carrara marble wall tile and
backsplash round out the blending of materials
in the kitchen.
"I pushed for the floating rustic shelves in lieu
of upper cabinets so the one window in the space
could let in as much light as possible," said the
designer. "I also pushed for the La Cornue range
instead of another leading professional model she
originally wanted because its dark finish with the
brass knobs was more in line with the look she
desired. She is very pleased with the selection."
Oak flooring in a beautiful herringbone pattern connects the kitchen and adjoining butler's
pantry/bar area, which features an antique mirror
backsplash and a hand-hammered stainless steel
sink. In this extension of the kitchen - which is
across from the breakfast table - Thelen specified
marble countertops, a material he chose to use
sparingly because of its affinity for staining.

seashell mirrors behind the tub in

"Plus that stove;
I don't cook but
I'd be willing
to learn just to
use it."
