Close to Nature MAY/JUNE 2010
Robert Templon, Studio Snaidero DC A Pikesville, Maryland, couple contacted Robert Templon of Studio Snaidero DC to design the kitchen of their sprawling, newly built contemporary. Located at one end of the great room, the kitchen shares with it a wall of floor-to-ceiling windows looking out onto a secluded back terrace bordered by woods. Templon emphasized the kitchen’s connection to nature by using cabinetry by the Italian designer Paolo Pininfarina, a stylist with Ferrari, in a textured dark wood that echoes the forest beyond. Templon combined it with cabinets in high-gloss Linen Beige, which echo the clean-lined, modern style of the home. To integrate the spaces, the cabinetry is made to look like furniture.
