When it came to designing this Charlotte, NC kitchen, Karen Kettler from Karen Kettler Designs and her client opted for a traditional open layout with one twist – a pro-style range with a bold impact.
During the first design meeting the client expressed her desire for a range that was both aesthetically pleasing and available in a unique color. Together they chose a 36″ ILVE Majestic Range in RAL Color 1027, Curry with Brass Trim.
“We were delighted that ILVE Appliances could produce any color on the RAL color wheel on such a short lead time,” says Karen.
Karen prides herself on taking a collaborative approach with her clients, encouraging them to start with the most loved element and evolving the design from there. “For this project, the range was the love,” says Karen.
This kitchen renovation required knocking down walls to combine an unused dining room with the existing kitchen for an open floor plan. A large, blue colored middle island was installed which perfectly complemented the range. Brass cabinet hardware and fixtures were used throughout the space for a clean, modern look.
“The blue island with gold-toned accents is definitely trending right now,” explains Karen. “As a kitchen and bath designer, it’s a treat to create a space with a big adventure for color!”
