GOLD Greater than 390 square feet: ADJ Interiors

Why the judges love it: The range is simply spectacular! We love the repeated use of navy in the simple, elegant kitchen.

Designer ADJ Interiors describes this kitchen as “traditional turned on its side.” The design inspiration is the luxurious Lacanche Sully range. Shipped from France, the striking, deep blue range is trimmed in brass and the showstopper of the space. Behind the range, a hand-painted, mottled subway tile backsplash catches natural light. The walls, woodwork, ceiling and cabinets are all the same color to emphasize the kitchen’s focal point, the expansive island designed to emulate an old library cabinet. Rift cut white oak cabinets, polished nickel cap pulls and a seamless slab of quartzite achieve the look. Three glass pendants above the island were kept simple with brass detailing to complement the range. Also matching the range, the Hickory Chair Laurent counter stools are covered in Giant Deep Blue Liquid Leather, a kid-friendly faux leather ideal for a family. On the ceiling, cedar beams were hand cut, stained and whitewashed to retain their warmth and unique softness. This happy, inviting space certainly doesn’t have its owners feeling blue.
