Old & New Green Charm; A Sacramento Kitchen Story

March 28, 2010 , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

A unique home deserves a unique kitchen.  This Sacramento Land Park residence was once home to a local University Art Professor who used the home as a tool for experimentation and art expression in the 1960’s and 1970’s.  He and his students installed strange lighting, a bird house-like second story, and eclectic wood work through out the house.

When the current owners moved in, their goal was to preserve all of the creative, yet quarky design details of the home.  When they came to me to design their kitchen, I knew we would have a blast!

Saloon Door

Existing Window

The home interior featured dentil molding around the door casings, dark wood walls and ceilings and green accents.  Two major elements that the owners wanted to design around was an existing round window in the kitchen and an old saloon door that the owner picked-up when the Sacramento Saloon closed.  All of these features were fabulous indicators of the direction of the design.

Another great feature of this kitchen, is that it is completely Green.  Not only did we use a Green core box cabinet from Crystal, but the clients also chose a recycled glass countertop from IceStone.  The kitchen also features Energy Star appliances, bamboo flooring, and all of the old appliances and salvageable materials were donated.
