This North Shore family wanted a lighter, brighter kitchen that increased storage and workspace while showcasing the owner’s collection of cookie jars.  As part of the design, the owners wanted a custom range hood that would serve as the focal point of the room.


First, this project was on a tight deadline as the family had a special event coming that drove the schedule for the unveiling of this kitchen. Second, to provide the added counter and storage, the footprint of the kitchen had to be expanded.


We started by removing a wall to allow for a large peninsula with seating for five. This also opened up the room dramatically providing the open concept kitchen that the owner’s desired. Upper cabinets with glass inserts and lighting were designed to display the family’s extensive cookie jar collection.
Decorative posts at island corners are used for electrical outlets. Special touches include corner cabinets that sit on counter with pocket doors to hide small appliances when not in use.
