Nadia N. Subaran, Aidan Design
When Nadia Subaran of Aidan Design was approached to redo the stark, white kitchen in a Potomac, Maryland, house, her task was clear: Open it up to the family room to create a more integrated space, and complete the picture with a palette of warm, vibrant colors. Subaran reclaimed space from poorly utilized closets, removed the wall separating the kitchen and family room, and deepened an already-existing bay window to create an efficient and functional layout. She chose dark cherry cabinetry and light Caesarstone countertops for contrast. Pumpkin-colored walls perfectly offset the dramatic glass-tile mosaic backsplash; the chic,
Foscarini suspension lamp; and the banquette fabric with its cheerful citrus motif.
