PC Contemporary Project: The Dining Space, Kitchen, & Dining Nook
In the mountains..
of Park City, Utah, our client’s home, designed in collaboration with Otto/Walker Architects and Craig Construction, provides a respite with a minimal tonal palette and soft textural details.
The open-concept floor plan of the kitchen and dining space brings the challenge of curating materials that compliment the great room while telling a story of their own. We started by choosing a few of our go-to white paint colors, Swiss Coffee by Benjamin Moore for the walls and Natural Cream by Benjamin Moore for the window trim.
Complementing the open-concept floor plan…
two symmetrical chandeliers over the great room and dining space set the foundation for the space.
Tan leather woven chairs soften the home’s bold contemporary lines, introducing a warm textural element to create a liaison between the great room and kitchen.
The streamlined dining look
Subtle contemporary details…
give the kitchen’s sleek materials life with stained cabinetry, Taj Mahal Quartzite countertops, and shelves flanking one of our favorite features: a stainless steel and brass hood.
Double islands provide expanded prep space, bringing symmetry and visual focus to the open-concept floor plan.
"The kitchen is one of my favorite parts of any home, and in this space, we knew we wanted all of the finishes to feel cohesive and streamlined."
A material connection..
between the kitchen and adjacent dining nook is maintained through the minimal tonal palette.
After forgoing lights in the kitchen area, we incorporated a linear pendant over the nook to draw the eye up. Completed with textural woven chairs, throw pillows comfort, and a vintage offset painting, the nook space offers a laid-back dining area for the everyday.
I’m always terrible at hanging framed pictures or art. It’s always too low, too high or ends up looking rigid and never seems to have the effect I want. I was just scrolling through your images to look at some of the ways artwork is incorporated, and I noticed in the PC contemporary breakfast nook the picture doesn’t seem to be centered on the wall or lined up with the light fixture. It doesn’t really look out of place either though. What’s the secret?
Hi Maggie! We’ve shared our favorite tips here – https://studio-mcgee.com/2017-4-6-hanging-art/ 💗
Would love to know what brand/color of wood flooring is used here. Would extra love a full blog of some of your favorites!!
I watched the video for the kitchen on YouTube and I noticed that on the back island more towards the hearth room, on either side of the sink the top drawers didn’t have doors. I saw some kind of thing in the, so was there some kind of machinery?
