Kitchens Over $200,000 Stone Love KEVIN MULLEN (pictured), MARK CAYEN, STEPHANIE GAFFNEY, KARI MIZEN and KRISTEN HODGE Empire Kitchen & Bath, Calgary, Alberta, Canada Polished elegance was the desired look for this kitchen, designed by Kevin Mullen along with associate designers Mark Cayen, Stephanie Gaffney, Kari Mizen and Kristen Hodge of Empire Kitchen & Bath. The goal was to impart a more transitional feel to the kitchen using finishes that are traditionally thought of as con- temporary, as well as to use stone – especially marble – as a design element rather than just for countertops and flooring. To ensure that the use of stone didn't overwhelm the 291-sq.-ft. showroom kitchen, similar tones were used in the marbles, solid color cabinets and backsplash to create a cohesive look. Unica 1 Cabinetry from Downsview Kitchens in a medium gray got an extra boost with a high-gloss finish, as well as glass-front uppers with interior lighting for display. The clean, squared-off lines of the Trinity hardware from Emtek add a bit of bling as well as a touch of modern appeal. Marble trim around the cabinets sets off the gray tones of the cabinetry and makes a rich, elegant statement. The center cabinet wall surrounds the four M Series Contemporary Wall Ovens from Wolf. Built-in shelving above provides a storage spot for serving pieces. A Sub-Zero 30" Integrated Column Refrigerator with Internal Dispenser and 30" Integrated Column Freezer with Ice Maker are tucked into this wall as well, paneled in the Unica 1 cabinetry. Along the far wall, the oversized Waterworks' Kerr sink is paired with the Regulator bridge faucet, also from Waterworks. A paneled Asko XXL dishwasher is included here, discreetly hidden from view. The Studio Line Lancaster tile backsplash from New Ravenna highlights the space and is repeated on the opposite wall. Calcutta Caldia Marble countertops grace each space. Islands sit back to back in the center of the space, each providing a different function. Topped with Black Cloud Onyx with a waterfall edge, the higher island provides seating for four. The lower island showcases Calcutta Caldia Marble countertops with a waterfall edge, and includes a Contemporary Gas Cooktop and Downdraft exhaust hood from Wolf. Finishing off the room, Bianco Bellow flooring from Walker Zanger continues the marble-look/stone theme. SILVER Photos: Rob Moroto 46 Kitchen & Bath Design News • August 2018
