A Cook's Kitchen

I wanted to share the kitchen from my in-laws house. I've been
working with them on a complete remodel of their entire waterfront
property...we're talking taking the walls down to the studs and adding on about
700 square feet! We're now getting to the final details such as designing window
treatments and furniture placement. It's been a lot of fun and a great challenge
for an interior design student like me. I'm glad my first "real life" design
project is one that I will be able to enjoy after it's all done!

The view from inside the kitchen looking towards the living

Because my mother-in-law entertains quite a bit and is a great
cook, this kitchen has every bell and whistle: pot filler, warming drawers,
double convection ovens, two sinks, refridgerator drawers, etc. It's really a
cook's dream kitchen!

Here it is in action!

One of my favorite details is the recycled glass tile backsplash. It's a beautiful slate blue that echoes the color of the water viewed from the window.

The marble counter tops have beautiful grey and gold veining throughout.

I was scrolling through your old posts and came across your in-laws kitchen- gorgeous! I'm looking for backsplash inspiration, but what caught my eye is the unusual chandelier over the island in your in-laws kitchen. I love it! I purchased a similar vintage chandelier to go over my island. I've had it for quite a while, awaiting the kitchen re-do. When I finally got around to having it cleaned and prepped for hanging, we discovered it was made from copper, not brass. It's really pretty and quite unusual. Do you know anything about the history of your parent's chandelier? I'm really curious about mine now, but have had no luck in researching on the internet.
