KITCHEN EDITORIALS: FOR FAMILY AND ENTERTAINING
A kitchen that converts seamlessly from a practical family space to a room perfect for entertaining.
This large kitchen and dining room has a very unusual and unique custom feature designed especially for the family by Hamma Galleries senior interior designer Jennifer Dearing. “The island table is used on a day-to-day basis by the family for casual eating” explains Ms. Dearing “and when company comes over, it can be lowered and joined to the dining table to make one long, huge table. They match up perfectly together and you have seating for up to 20 people.”
“The client was very keen on having simple, shaker white cabinets. They loved the brass hardware details, and we carried the brass theme over to the pendant light and the sconces over the sink.”
“In addition to what you might call the regular food preparation and cooking area, we also created a separate space that we call the baking area and coffee server,” pointed out Ms. Dearing. “This is home to baking tools, coffee maker and other small appliances, all of which can be hidden away when not in use behind bi-fold doors, keeping the kitchen looking neat and tidy”.
This space was created by opening up two smaller rooms, and with more than 27 feet of new windows brought right down to counter level, plus a French door, the family now enjoys panoramic views of Mullett Bay, St. George’s from this amazing kitchen and dining room.
