KITCHENS

Platinum Winner

Castle Design

LESS THAN 240 SQUARE FEET

This local interior designer with Castle Design remodeled her own kitchen into a colorful space that is a bright spot in her 100-year-old Webster Groves home. The striking blue hand-glazed backsplash tile was the inspiration for the rest of the design. Blue reminded the designer of her hometown in California with vivid coastal ocean views. She relocated the kitchen to the dining room, which had a larger footprint with casement windows that are now a focal point in the new kitchen. The details in the kitchen are a mix of the past and present. The custom white hood is finished with century-old reclaimed barn wood. Contemporary wood counter stools and oversized brass light fixtures balance out the transitional design. Now the cheerful heart of her home, this designer brought a modern eclectic flair to her Midwest kitchen. See stlouishomesmag.com for resources.
