Mediterranean Marvel KRISTA AGAPITO S&W Kitchens, Longwood, FL Though the client first approached designer Krista Agapito of S&W Kitchens about a master bath re- model, that project quickly changed to a kitchen renovation when a tree came crashing through the house. In keeping with the client's request, the designer got to work creating a kitchen that would be light and bright and offer lots of storage, yet work with the Mediterranean style of the home and its Saltillo floor tile and wood accents. Agapito notes that the original kitchen ceiling was high and vaulted, with lots of angles. A decision was made to straighten out the walls and flatten the over-angled ceiling to simplify the space and provide a cleaner design with intentional lines. The de- signer removed high transom windows and oversized archways, as well as a large drywall pantry to make room for a bar area with a full-height Sub-Zero wine column with wood panel, white and glass-front cabinetry and hand-painted Italian tile that tie into the Mediterranean style of the home. Around the room, Omega Cabinetry stacked cabinets in white with the Blair door style reach to the ceiling and showcase closed mullion doors. Sub-Zero refrigerator and freezer columns are com- pletely integrated, with oversized wood panels to align seamlessly with the tall adjacent cabinetry. An extra-deep appliance garage in the corner can house many counter appliances. Wolf double ovens are located here as well, while around the turn, a Wolf cooktop is paired with a custom range hood. White subway tile and a Silestone Calacatta quartz countertop from Cosentino help brighten the space. The large island that provides an ample seating area and prep space also features the Blair door style, this time in Meteor, a complementary gray finish. A desk area in this gray shade was also incorporated into the space, and can be tucked away behind large barn doors when not in use. Photos: Rickie Agapito BRONZE August 2019 • 55
