2016 Kitchen Trends and Greenwich CT

The Kitchen at 42 Mooreland Road, Greenwich CT (for sales information on this property, click here)

I designed my first kitchen in 1988 under the auspices of the then Greenwich kitchen and bath firm, Ceramic Design.  With Smallbone at the peak of its popularity, their influence in faux finishing kitchen cabinetry so that it looked less like a kitchen and more like furniture was all the rage.  From there we saw a move to rich wood kitchen cabinets, and, most recently, it's been all about white.  

Enter 2016.  What are the experts saying?

Comfort and Gathering:  Kitchen's remain the heart of the home.  Cabinets that look like furniture, concealed appliances, and ample, dedicated space for comfortable eating remain important.

White and Black:  Charlotte Barnes of Charlotte Barnes Design is loving black and white kitchens with nickel hardware.  Farrow & Ball's Wimborne White is a creamy white that Charlotte favors for kitchen cabinets.

Modern Vibe:  Sound Beach Partners, a high-end design/build firm has figured it out, as shown by their latest home that captured three offers in the first two weeks.  The kitchen hit all the high notes from the firm's signature gun metal custom dining table and banquette, to floor to ceiling cabinetry in a gloss finish, and unexpected details such as the window set in the cooktop backsplash, capturing a view of the outdoors.  

One of our favorite kitchens and breakfast rooms is at 42 Mooreland Drive, shown in this post.  Renowned architect Boris Baranovich got it right from scale to every last detail.  Currently on the market, listed by our team, The Stevens Kencel Group.
