Streamlined Style

A minimalist vibe enlivens a kitchen redo

A Chevy Chase family asked designer Therese Baron Gurney to revamp their traditional kitchen. Collaborating with Julia Walter of Boffi, Baron Gurney conjured a spare, modern space with improved functionality.

The redesign centers on a Carrara-topped island with a glass base at one end that creates space for seating. A wall of cabinetry keeps clutter at bay. “Vertical cabinets provide a modern aesthetic, organize appliances and maximize storage,” Baron Gurney explains. A floating desk can hold multiple computers; a printer and other equipment are stored in an adjacent pantry.

The designer selected dark-stained titanium for the upper cabinets, while the lower cabinets are lacquered matte-white. An adjacent dining area hosts guests in style.
