POWDER ROOM MIRRORS KITCHEN AESTHETICS The powder room is also closely linked to the kitchen, both physically and, after the remodel, aesthetically. Brannock brought in repeated elements from the kitchen, most notably the ledgestone that is showcased on the walls. The vanity reflects the same color and style that Brannock used as an accent cabinet beneath the kitchen cooktop. She topped it with Light Silt quartz and accent- ed it with a half-vessel sink and Rejuvenation Waterhouse faucet in Brass. Mounting it on the wall adds interest and helps save space. isn't as frequent, nor is it that far away. She also wanted double ovens, but the Advantium Technology gives her convection and microwave capabilities in a single appliance." Brannock also gave her client a larger, more functional island, enhancing its aesthetics with an interesting combination wood/quartz top that sits atop a Brubaker Kitchens cabinet base painted in a custom Sherwin-Williams Tricorn Black, which contrasts boldly against the white perimeter cabinets and harmonizes with the 32"x32" porcelain Evoque Carbon floor tile. "It's a cool version of a two-tier island, without being too tiered," she states, noting that the wood, Antique Oak with a natural stain, floats on top of the Cosmos Granite and Marble Light Silt engi- neered quartz. The designer purposefully gave the wood portion enough width so anyone sitting at the island can have enough space to set down a drink without having it fall onto the lowered quartz. And, because there wasn't enough space to fully extend the wood the full length of the island, the designer opted to give it interesting beginning and end points that are 'stepped' from the quartz. "There wouldn't have been enough space between the island and the wall for an adequate walkway," she explains. "The stepped top also gives the island a funky, quirky look that totally works in the space." ▪ The kitchen is fully open to the Great Room, where ledgestone sheaths the fireplace. Brannock brought the multi-colored, earth-tone stone into the kitchen by utilizing it as a backsplash.
