Brass & Glass

First Place: Large Kitchen

Brass & Glass

Empty nesters building a custom home in Bethesda envisioned a kitchen that would revolve around entertaining and maintaining a healthy lifestyle. Architect Anne Decker and kitchen designer Sarah Kahn Turner crafted a sophisticated space that would meet these needs and more.

The window side of the kitchen focuses on food prep, with a cooktop and downdraft vent on the island. An adjacent wall of tall, white retractable doors conceals the refrigerator and freezer, a smoothie station with its own fruit-and-vegetable fridge and a steam oven. Opposite the window wall, a wet bar features cabinet doors bound in faux leather. A black-and-white color scheme with unlacquered brass accents creates a French industrial vibe. Hot-rolled-steel shelves echo the metal-frame windows.

Says Kahn Turner, “I love how each component completes the whole. Although there’s a lot going on, the finishes work in harmony.”
