Today, we're sharing all the details from one of our latest design projects! Complete with all new custom cabinetry, countertops, flooring, lighting, appliances and finishes, this kitchen couldn't have turned out any better. And it was finished just in time for Christmas! Scroll down to see the photo tour and read more about the selection process for this beautiful kitchen.

We are always really thrilled when our clients decide to go with a natural stone for kitchen countertops. There is just no substitute for the real deal. Quartzite, or similar stones will have a one-of-a-kind natural appearance, with beautiful veining and variations in the stone. In other words, there is beauty in the imperfections. Because quartzite has a harder and more durable nature, it is a great alternative to marble or dolomite, and still offers that same look!

The kitchen cabinets were all custom built by our favorite carpenter who we have worked with on many projects. The attention to detail really steps the design up a notch. Because we wanted a more modern aesthetic, we decided to incorporate slab cabinet doors that sit completely flush with the cabinet with no frame or panel. It is such a clean and precise look. The vent hood is simple, yet stunning. Of course, it was the perfect place to hang a lovely Christmas wreath! We went with a warm brass finish on all the hardware from Top Knobs. This kitchen called for a pot filler to take the design to the next level and give that truly custom look. We love incorporating pot fillers in our kitchen renovations any time we are able to. All of the kitchen cabinets are painted Chantilly Lace by Benjamin Moore, one of our favorite crisp white paint colors.

Early on in the design process, we knew we wanted to bring in some corner floating shelves! There was previously a large cabinet in this area that made it seem crowded. We opted for a more minimal approach, to free up un-needed heavy cabinetry, especially with the dishwasher right below.

We are happy to have added some new items to our LDCO Shoppe! Here are some of our favorite styling pieces we love using in our kitchen projects to add that final touch. These accessories each have a unique design and were carefully selected by Laura.

We always say, "Lighting is the jewelry of the kitchen," and this case is no exception. This beautiful custom light over the breakfast nook is truly a show-stopper and provides that sleek, modern design that our clients really wanted.

We can't forget about the the kitchen pendant lights. We opted for a nickel finish to balance out all the brass fixtures.

After many months of planning, preparation, and hard work, this project is complete! It is always a pleasure to serve our clients throughout the entire process and help our clients Live Beautifully.
