Giving Life to Kitchen Design

We can honestly say that nothing gets us creatively engaged at Purekitchen like a challenge. So when asked by Boston-based Newton Kitchens and Design to help create a kitchen that was all at once fun, functional, and ecologically friendly, we were obviously excited.

Teaming up with NKD’s talented designer Pierre Matta proved to be a rewarding experience. His interest in the use of green products, coupled with his high level of professionalism and creativity, assured a productive partnership and a great outcome. After assessing the client’s needs and goals, Pierre settled on a bold design that expertly took advantage of the home’s existing palette.

Pierre’s choice to pair bamboo and painted white slab doors for the cabinetry complements the clean and modern look of the kitchen. Upon further thought it occurred to us that the use of natural materials like bamboo does something far more significant than simply enhancing a kitchen design – it gives it life.

A Family House in Fulham

We recommend taking a good, hard look at this recently renovated 3000sf home in Fulham, UK. Designed and managed by the owner, Daniel Lee, the renovation of the 19th century structure landed on that sweet spot between simple and cozy. Note the sprawling kitchen, custom steel and glass walls, and handmade brass show fixture. See more at Remodelista.

Artists' Rendezvous in Kanagawa

There's not much that can go wrong when you combine the character of turn-of-the-century brick with contemporary Japanese design language. This certainly is the case for this renovation from architecture firm, No. 555 . The project was conceived as an occasional work space for two transplanted design sisters, one from Hong Kong and one from LA, built from the ruins of the servants' quarters of their childhood home. Gently modernized spaces with thoughtful accents make for a satisfyingly warm final product. Find the original article at Remodelista. Photography by Koichi Torimura
