Cozy Transitional Kitchen by Elina Katsioula-Beall

NKBA's 2013 Design Competition Winner: Small Kitchen - 1st Place.

Housed in a mid-century modern, post-and-beam gem, this kitchen was remodeled to reflect its original charm. The center section of the dropped ceilingwas opened up to expose original beams and a long row of unusual tilt-down vents. A dash of charcoal, turquoise and red Formica, colorful pulls, plus linear cooktop arrangements take their inspiration from the good old days, then kick it up a notch to bring it into the 21st Century. Architectural restoration of rare 1940s plywood, a two-bay breakfast area, the "alkalizer" water niche with mini-sink, refurbished "boat-cabinets," and a modernism-inspired sculpture contribute to the kitchen's vintage "wow" factor. The shiny beverage center with drawer refrigerators and wine rack is topped with a glass shelf. The bouncy cork flooring invites us to step into the 1950s.
