The first thing to catch my eye in the kitchen of this year’s San Francisco Decorator Showcase by Navarra Design was the traditional La Cornue range and hood in glossy chocolate with brass detailing. (swoon) It was coupled with a contemporary verre églomisé backsplash (gilded glass) featuring dandelions. It’s a magical combo. Navarra keeps the inset cabinetry clean in a crisp white, yet adds a contrasting cerused oak island. The kitchen space is unified with striking calacatta marble countertops. The metal and wood bar counter is an unexpected element placed perpendicular to the island and is the perfect spot for the homeowner’s kids. The high lacquer ceiling in teal blue was a wonderful way to incorporate a burst of color and bring the kitchen and family room together. The family room’s breakfast nook is set in the window and delivers breathtaking views of the San Francisco Bay. (it’s lovely)
And how cute is the dog bed nestled under the staircase? Brilliant use of space!
