“TIMELESS TRANSITIONAL.” THAT’S HOW INTERIOR DESIGNER NICOLE MAH OF VANCOUVER-BASED KELLY DECK DESIGN DESCRIBES THE GOURMET KITCHEN SHE DESIGNED FOR A COUPLE WITH TWO YOUNG CHILDREN
“Timeless transitional.” That’s how interior designer Nicole Mah of Vancouver-based Kelly Deck Design describes the gourmet kitchen she designed for a couple with two young children.
On the wife’s wish list: a white and grey kitchen with room for kids to do homework and plenty of space for guests to gather. The husband craved professional-style appliances to bring an industrial edge to the space.
“This was really about creating a kitchen that was integrated with the rest of the home,” says Nicole. “Family and friends are important to this couple, and entertaining is a priority here.”
It’s no surprise, then, that the centrepiece is a deep island that seats eight. Navy paint sets off the island’s pillared legs and a Carrara marble basket-weave backsplash with platinum insets shimmers in the background.
“The homeowners wanted something enduring, so this kitchen is classic with a slight contemporary twist,” says Nicole. And there’s no doubt their guests will be swooning over it during the many soirees to come.
