Once at the top of the marble staircase, the homeowner’s sleek euro style is apparent. Tongue and groove yellow pine ceilings warm up the space, and the same yellow pine is used in the room’s trim. A hydronic floor heating system is hidden by ceramic tile and works to provide a nice even heat in the winter months. Walnut slab cabinetry runs throughout the kitchen and reinforces the color palette, while a Labradorite Blue granite waterfall countertop provides additional prep space and accommodates two barstools. The same material, which features beautiful flakes of blue, can be found on the island. Along the perimeter, lustrous stainless-steel appliances and countertops tie into the exposed duct work of the room and the finishes of various plumbing and lighting fixtures. “This kitchen presented a unique challenge in that this loft was really designed to offer everything someone would need to live solely in this space, so while we were working with abbreviated space, we still wanted to offer all the functionality of a full size kitchen,” explains Jackie Howard of Scarlett’s Cabinetry. “Also, with the view being the main attraction, we didn’t want to obstruct it with any wall cabinets. Every single base cabinet was designed to not waste one inch of space, and in order to do that, we incorporated everything from roll-outs and spice racks to cutlery and tray dividers.”
