This modest kitchen utilizes the use of custom range to its décor. The La Cornue range in this culinary space was custom of handmade product which was made in France to the specifications of a talented designer, Susan Dossetter. The range is so beautiful which is almost like jewelry in the kitchen. This project was co-designed by Andrew Skurman. We can see that the white tile of the kitchen backsplash becomes the dominant backdrop of the custom range. The tiles cover the surface of the wall from the floor to the ceiling. And there is also a white floor that becomes the border of this range area with other spaces in this kitchen. An open built-in shelf is added on the surface of the backsplash to store more kitchen aids and utensils.
A huge 4 by 4 foot chase, a big column that holds all sorts of plumbing and electrical wiring runs right thru this culinary space and couldn’t be moved. Thus, Sandra Bird, the designer of this project tried to find an ingenious idea by working around this gallant item. Then, she built it out into four different areas which consist of a buffet, a baking area, a cooking area with a range and a desk. This California kitchen still looks stunning although it has a quite cramped look with many furnishings around the center column. The range is placed at one of the sides of the column with a hood over it. A huge vase with a bunch of lovely yellow flowers is added on the countertop of the cabinet to give a sweet look to the décor.
