Casual Country/Rustic Kitchen by Chris Novak Berry

Sub-Zero and Wolf's 2010-2012 Kitchen Design Contest. A fashion executive who travels the world for her work wanted a space that would make the most of her precious time at home, particularly in the kitchen, where she enjoys recreating foods from around the world, and sharing the experience with her kids, friends and business colleagues. She added a new wing to her 1950s Colonial ranch to accommodate a larger kitchen gathering space that would include a 48-inch Wolf range and a bold, earthy aesthetic recalling the easy living of Western Mediterranea. Berry recreated a Moroccan light fixture from a photograph the homeowner had in steel, iron, faux-painted copper and colored glass inserts, for a unique focal point. Panels of distressed wood, iron nails and hand-forged hardware transform the Sub-Zero into a Spanish armoire. "She doesn't have the chance to go shopping all the time and the dual refrigeration of the Sub-Zero will keep foods longer and at a better quality than other refrigerators might," says Berry. Laid in a Versailles pattern, three sizes of limestone floor tile appear randomly positioned for a casual feel. The palette of soapstone, honed granite, ceramic and terra cotta countertops, and mix of three woods all emanate a subtle earthy patina. "The whole idea was to create an interesting collected look that accumulated over time, that wasn't static or 'put together," Berry explains. Extending the windows to the counter also adds a casual, breezy feel.
