With its clean-lined style and organic material palette, an Annapolis kitchen by Scarlett Breeding lets water views take center stage.

Best in Show: River’s Edge

Large Kitchen—First Place

Architect Scarlett Breeding blended Shingle-style exteriors with minimalist interiors in her design of a house on the Magothy River near Annapolis. “It was important for the kitchen to keep the same language in order to integrate with the rest of the house,” she explains. Taking her cues from the architecture, she designed glass cabinet transoms to echo the architectural windows, integrating and concealing the appliances to retain a streamlined look; appliances around the cooktop are hidden away but within easy reach via flush lift systems.

Quartzite countertops and backsplash are grain-matched to create a clean-lined, unified effect. The range is a focal point, with an elongated stainless-steel hood and stainless-steel cabinets on either side; polished stainless-steel vertical wall cabinet doors define the beverage bar area. Breeding selected a soothing gray palette for the millwork, which complements the soft hue of the quartzite. It’s a combination that perfectly reflects the serene mood of the waterfront scenery outside.
