Subtle Palette

A modernized kitchen keeps with the traditional style of this home in the Forest Ridge development of Broken Arrow.

Stuart Harle, AKDB and owner of Carriage House Design, worked previously with the homeowners and had an idea of their style.

The 25-year-old kitchen was gutted and rearranged. An unnecessary door to the living room was removed, allowing for more cabinetry. A peninsula that divided the space was also scrapped and a spacious island added.

Harle chose cabinetry from Plato Woodwork. The cabinets are painted a mushroom color with brown glaze. The decorative hardware is from Top Knobs, and countertops are white spring granite with an ogee edge.

The backsplash is especially unique and utilizes polished pillow travertine paglierino marble. Harle added a gold and silver leaf square tile installed in a pinwheel pattern. The flooring is porcelain tile installed in a diamond pattern and accented with a traditional runner.

The lighting was renovated and replaced with LED recessed cans in the ceiling; LED strips above and below the upper cabinets add ambiance. The three matching pendants from Progress Lighting accentuate the updated style with a traditional flair.
