R5 Best in Show

WHAT OUR JUDGES HAD TO SAY
KF: “I love the elegant and linear simplicity of this kitchen. The square shape of the glass in the ovens complements the square shapes of the stools, island, counter sink, and window. The flush-mounted ceiling lights with the three pendants and under-cabinet lighting adds the right amount of simple elegance.”

PH: “I especially love the details—mini pendant lighting with a crystal harness, simple stools that tuck away, the Verner Panton chairs, the solid surface table with wood base. I also like the square geometry of the sink at the island. Clean, sleek, nice!”

MLP: “Beautifully simple.”

WHAT OUR JUDGES HAD TO SAY
KF: “Ooh-la-la! I like the marble walls behind the stoves and the waterfall effect of a multi-tiered counter. I sure would love to be invited to their home for dinner. They appear to be great cooks!”

PH: “This is a cook’s kitchen. What cook would not drool over the wall of Moletini ranges and side-by-side Sub-Zeros? The Carerra marble countertops and backsplash are a perfect fit as are the multi-level countertops.”

MLP: “The Kooluris Kitchen is a working kitchen that puts many show kitchens to shame. The island, though very large, is well designed. The different levels help keep its scale appropriate.”

 

 

MODERN MAGIC

Whose kitchen: Jackie Schnetzer of Irvington
Designed by: Amazing Spaces, LLC
Briarcliff Manor
(914) 239-3725

WHAT OUR JUDGES HAD TO SAY
KF: “This outstanding rainforest granite, a bold and earthy look, needs little other embellishment. I love the simplicity of the cabinets with the Shaker-style inset panel, the squared-off island, the clean, uncluttered window. It has just the right amount of lighting.”

PH: “I love everything about this kitchen: the bold use of rainforest stone, the fabrication of the island stone surround, the mosaic behind the cook top. The rectilinear shapes repeat throughout the kitchen: in the unadorned window over the sink, the sleek stainless shelves at the bar, the stone backsplash, the wood soffit above the island. Love the bar stools.”

MLP: “This kitchen is gorgeous. The palette of deep, dark, natural tones provide a feeling of serenity. The kitchen is beautifully integrated, from the custom lighting to the island stools. My favorite.”

WINTER WHITE

Whose kitchen: Michael and Kelly Hull of Rye
Designed by: Amazing Spaces, LLC
Briarcliff Manor
(914) 239-3725

WHAT OUR JUDGES HAD TO SAY
KF: “This white country kitchen was done perfectly: perfect skylights, window, French doors, counter/pass-through, raised ceiling, wood floors. It is airy and light and fills the space perfectly. The amount of lighting is in perfect scale. The hardware is simple and classic and works with the exposed hinges, a nice classic touch.”

PH: “Great traditional style with a central star: the butcher-block island. The range hood is fantastic.”

MLP: “The Hull kitchen is well detailed. The chunky iron-strapped butcher-block island is a great centerpiece.”
