Inviting Luxury in the Kitchen with Classic Calcutta Marble

Staging & Interior Design
One of the most inviting yet luxurious kitchens we’ve ever seen! This family-centric space boasts all the best in upscale appliances, finishes, and furnishings.
Wonderful in endless ways, this kitchen captivates the heart of the suburban home and its family occupants. Perhaps, though, the most captivating element of all (besides the adorable labradoodle) is the most luxurious, the Calcutta Gold marble backsplash. A true classic stone coveted by everyone from artists to aristocrats, this Italian-quarried marble gets its mesmerizing luminescence from sparkling grey and gold veining highlighting each tile. While the marble is uber-luxe, the kitchen’s other elements balance with a homey European feel.
To carry the metallic veining from the marble backsplash through to the rest of the kitchen, the designer used stainless steel appliances, pendant lights, faucets, and cabinet hardware. Also, in stainless and chrome are a series of serve ware and candleholders, adding a touch of brilliance to the countertops.
We love the soft white of the cabinetry and ceiling, both boasting detailed woodwork. The cabinets are customized with framed fronts on all the doors and drawers and further decorated with beveled glass doors and thick step molding along the top. The island presents the perfect place for breakfast and dinner with the family or entertaining a group of close friends. A vegetable sink with faucet in the corner of the island allows the hostess to entertain and prep food at the same time. A trio of large windows overlook the forest providing a bit of serenity to the kitchen.
The space’s sparkling white elements contrast beautifully with the cappuccino finish on the wood floors and tops of the island and table. The wood reflects the light to keep the eye moving through space. The contemporary stools in white leather and dark wood tie both light and dark together for a dramatic touch of contrast.
