Portfolio Peek: Kitchen

For a family of seven and lots of friends and family to boot, a large kitchen was a necessity at the lakehouse.  We started with two side-by-side subzeros to store all the endless food, two dishwashers to clean it all up and a beautiful wolf range with the perfect place to make pancakes.  We added a farmhouse sink, kid-friendly bar stools, a reclaimed brick backsplash, beautiful iron sconces from Bevolo and a large island with Cambria Torquay to add the marble flair while keeping things durable….

On the Job with C: Kitchen backsplash

A client of mine is purchasing a wonderful 60″ Wolf range for her kitchen.  We are now working through the countertops and the backsplash to set it off.  Since the range it large, we have plenty of space to highlight something unique.  The Moroccan tiles really caught our eye and here are some great ideas we are toying with:

On the Job with C: New Wolf Showroom

Last week several clients and I joined Jim Bakke, president and CEO of Sub-Zero and Wolf to an exclusive gathering in celebration of the opening of their new Sub-Zero and Wolf showroom in Dallas.  We enjoyed hors d’oeuvres prepared by chef Garth Blackburn and renowned Dallas chef Richard Chamberlain while sipping on Napa Valley wines served by Louis M. Martini winemaker Dean Katzung and Dan Michael of William Hill.  Most importantly, we were able to see the appliances in action, confirming for both of my clients that a Wolf range is the way to go.

Visit their new showroom at 3707 Lemmon Avenue Dallas, TX 75219.  It’s worth the trip.

On the Job with C: The Range Hood

I’ve been shopping for appliances.  Wolf had us at hello.  They have great options and are said to be the best manufacturer of ranges on the market.  I love the iconic red knobs!  We have chosen a 60″ commercial range that will bring hours of pancake flipping happiness from the built-in skillet alone.  I’m now pondering the hood.  Do I do a built-in liner with cabinetry around it?  Do I do the standard stainless steel hood?  Or do we consider the commercial hood with the liner in back for plates and warming lights above?

I leaning towards the liner.  I’m sure we can find some great cabinetry options and having a nice clean backsplash is always a plus.  What do you think?
