                                                ASID SHOWCASE HOUSE 2013 KITCHEN/PANTRY-DESIGN PROCESS cont.  

In designing the kitchen and butler's pantry for this year's ASID Showcase House on historic Cathedral Hill in St. Paul, Sheree and I want to honor the architectural style of the Victorian mansion yet create a design that functions for a busy young family.  We start the interior design process with some inspiration from a gray color palette and a linen print fabric.

The soft grays and whites of this color palette are soothing yet sophisticated and because they are neutrals they are timeless and versatile. We chose Coventry Gray, Chelsea Gray and Cloud White for our color scheme. Paints are from Benjamin Moore, a Showcase House sponsor.

Valance Fabric - Copy

I love the arabesque design of this  new linen print by Kravet. Its open trellis pattern lends itself to traditional or modern interiors. It will look fabulous as tailored valances for the kitchen and butler's pantry windows.

This traditional style faucet by Rohl makes the perfect historic staetment for the kitchen.

We were so excited to find these tiles in the arabesque design which repeats the valance fabric. They have a wonderful "old world" crackle finish and will be used as a medallion feature on the backsplash. By Pratt and Larson Ceramics

The traditional detail on this polished nickel Emory pendant by Quoizel makes it a perfect  choice over the center island.
