The Ultimate Traditional Kitchen from Snaidero
In our past we have certainty revealed our fair share of stunning kitchen designs and most of them modern, but we really love a well done traditional style as well. The Kelly from Snaidero is a marriage of old world charm and modern practicality that incorporates some of the fixtures from the new Passpartout collection. Nice finishing touches include detailed corner decorations, inner shelving equipped with back lighting that illuminate both up and downward. This collaboration with designer Massimo Iosa Ghini who has worked with Snaidero in the past weighed the stylistic choices like the framed door with integrated channeled ledges that is clean cut and chiseled to represent the old world craftsmanship of the past.
The contrast of the black marble counter tops and back splash really pop and create visual definition especially off of the white cabinetry and flooring. The underlying accents of gold in the corner decoration, vent hood and other appointments adds a nice touch of class and breaks up the black and white. I will say the floor here is absolutely gorgeous and ties the entire room together in a well-orchestrated look that extend right to the ceiling which features a contrasting finish that definitely offers a nice touch of class.
This look needs a great light to do it justice and the chandelier style seen here over the island is a bit bold for a kitchen setting unless you have a high style design like the Kelly. This hanging light looks right at home here despite its rather ornate and formal appearance which may usually be reserved for a formal dining room. The right lighting can make or break a room and should include dimming capability so you can set the right mood for every occasion.
