Sarah Turner created a sleek kitchen to complement the design of her client's Logan Circle condo.

Best in Show: Living Large

Small Kitchen—Second Place

When the owner of an open-plan, garden-level condo in Logan Circle tapped designer Sarah Turner to renovate his kitchen, she conceived a functional space that would feel like a seamless extension of the adjacent living room. A paneled pantry door with traditional trim was replaced with a slab door painted to match the wall so that the adjacent spaces would flow together visually. An integrated Sub-Zero refrigerator-freezer, a paneled dishwasher and a sink made of the same Caesarstone as the countertops all contribute to the seamless look.

Turner selected Zonavita cabinetry in warm wood tones and a flat-fronted modern style that complements the living area nearby; the cabinets are larger than their predecessors, with better storage. The island countertop with waterfall ends provides a comfortable perch, furnished with rattan stools. Double ovens, a built-in Miele espresso machine, and a U-Line wine fridge make entertaining easy.
