Lap of Luxury

Award of Distinction -- Large Kitchen

Lap of Luxury During a whole-house renovation, Dahlia Mahmood was asked to replace her client’s mundane kitchen with one that would be lavish and elegant, yet timeless. She gutted the existing space and started from scratch, teaming with high-end cabinet manufacturer Clive Christian for cabinetry and other details.

The completed kitchen is opulent, with a metallic silk finish on the walls and ceiling and custom chandeliers from Holly Hunt. The white-painted cabinets showcase elaborate moldings, pilasters and other millwork. The island is topped with a walnut counter from Clive Christian, which also supplied the bar stools. The Arctic Cream granite peripheral countertops complement the pearlescent mosaic tile backsplash. The breakfast table and chairs are from Baker.
