Rooms With a View: Ship-Shape Finish

A design team accentuates dramatic vistas in a traditional kitchen

A 1950s cottage on the Severn River near Annapolis had undergone several renovations before its current owners tapped Hammond Wilson to orchestrate a complete makeover and better showcase the property’s dramatic views. Designed with kitchen designer Sandy Payne, the new kitchen does just that. Double islands are oriented toward a wall of windows overlooking the river. The design team painted Tedd Wood cabinetry in two custom colors; Caesarstone tops the working island while walnut on the island bar evokes the interior of a yacht.
