This charming and elegant Raleigh kitchen by Vicky Serany of Southern Studio is an ideal location for casual entertaining with family and friends. When designing a kitchen, Vicky emphasizes that function should be the first priority, followed closely by aesthetic beauty. The color palette here is a mixture of warm neutrals and varied textures, enhancing the natural beauty of the individual design elements. Beautiful bisque cabinetry with antique glass is stacked to the ten-foot ceiling to maximize storage space.

North Carolina Design Kitchen

Attention was paid to every detail, including beautiful marble countertops, hand-glazed backsplash tiles, and hand blown glass cabinet hardware. The large custom designed island with a hand-rubbed finish is a work of art.  The accompanying dining table can be tucked into the island to provide enhanced flow and casual comfort. It can also be re-oriented and moved away from the island to host a more formal gathering.

The seating is comfortable and durable due to the Sunbrella fabric upholstery. A butler’s pantry is tucked in the dining alcove and provides the perfect place to house entertaining necessities.  The built-in desk was designed to make the chores of daily life a little easier and is conveniently/centrally located in the hub of the home.

In our bigger-is-better world, this kitchen proves that great design can be achieved in quaint spaces.
