Clean Lines, Sparkling Finishes
This 425-square-foot kitchen designed by Marc Christian Fine Cabinetry was designed for entertaining, gourmet cooking and everyday family meals. An oversized stainless-steel hood is the focal point of the space with its sleek curves and striking design. A wall of marble incorporates the Wolf microwave, warming drawer and steam oven. Custom European frameless cabinetry in a semi-gloss sheen offers ample storage space and emphasizes the beautifully clean lines. The perimeter cabinets are painted white, while the island is a cerused ebony stained red grandis. The wall cabinets contrast all other cabinetry with white-painted frames and red grandis inset doors with opaque glass inserts. 

The island is designed with a curving bead-board back for the seating area. Pure white Caesarstone countertops finish off the cabinetry and emphasize the unique winding shape of the island. The clean lines and sparkling finishes of the kitchen create a visual masterpiece for the hub of this custom home.

Why the judges love it:
The shape of the island is really beautiful, and the bar stools pair perfectly. We love the wallpaper under the soffit. It is such a subtle and beautiful detail. The transitional and traditional mix is cool.
