Jonas Carnemark's kitchen awarded Best Of Class for Large Kitchens.

Colorful Contemporary


When a Potomac homeowner hired Carnemark systems + design, inc. to update her kitchen, she had two goals: to open the kitchen up to the adjoining dining area for a sense of uninterrupted space, and to create a colorful, contemporary kitchen. The challenge turned out to be in creating the open floor plan, because the wall separating the kitchen from the dining room was load-bearing. Carnemark left a slice of the wall intact, then made it a pivotal design element by painting it a warm red. Sleek cabinetry and spare lines finished the job.
