As February, the official month of red, wraps up I wanted to show some of the favorite home designs we've done in red.
One of my favorite kitchens of all time. No grey cabinetry and white caesar stone here. Each drawer designed for a specific purpose reminiscent of an antique apothecary cabinet.
The house is a 1920's Spanish revival and the hard wrought metal hardware looks like part of the original kitchen. We kept the drawers classic with just a small bead routing. It's all about the color and hardware.
For the dining room we designed a parquet walnut trestle table and classic Spanish parson chairs in red velvet. We didn't want the dining room looking serious a la Hearst Castle, we wanted a relaxed, lived in look so we chose to leave the walnut in a clear wax finish.
Keeping with our theme of "rebellious formal" style, played off the traditional stripes for the curtains, but instead of a heavy velvet used a soft linen with irregular striping and strands of pure white keeping the look fresh and crisp.
Of course the red continued into the exterior with custom settees. The original Spanish trestle table from their old house is perfect in this outdoor entertaining area and is antiquing well in the elements.
