Our Favorite Kitchen Design from 2019’s First Half | Transitional Kitchen Photos

When you have the luxury of looking at world-class kitchen design on a daily basis, you tend to get a bit spoiled. But in terms of the first half of 2019, one transitional kitchen design stood out from the rest.

This kitchen design from Peter Salerno Inc. started with a reclamation project: a collection of vintage wooden beams from St. Patrick’s Orphanage in New York City. Designer Peter Salerno (CMKBD) took one look at the beams and knew they had to be saved. A quick trip into NYC to reclaim the rustic beams, and the project was on.

The reclaimed wood beams frame the ceiling in stark contrast to the modernity of the transitional kitchen below. The white island countertop and backsplash are set against gorgeous hand-crafted, hand-painted white and gray cabinets. The massive twin refrigerator and glass-enclosed wine rack take up a full feature wall, while the opposite end of the kitchen features large windows and a dining nook to allow in plenty of warm, ambient light.

The range hood enclosure demands attention as a centerpiece of the transitional design, evoking imagery of a grand piano painted gray to match the kitchen. The neutral color palette of the kitchen design allows the crossing vintage wood beams on the ceiling to take center stage, pulling the eye upward to notice all the beautiful design elements that exist near the top of the kitchen (the glass featurettes, the range hood, the statement island lighting, etc.).

From the original article:

The transitional kitchen design, construction and installation was handled by Peter Salerno Inc., the most award-winning North American kitchen and bath design firm of the 21st century. Winners of national awards from the NKBA, KBIS, HGTV, HGTV People’s Choice and Signature Kitchens & Baths (among others), Peter Salerno Inc. prides itself on extraordinary design based on personal knowledge of individual clients, their lives and backgrounds.

This Peter Salerno Inc. transitional kitchen design also features a steady dose of Princess Blue, one of PANTONE’s breakout design colors of the year. The notes of blue are mainly featured in dishes and stemware, allowing ambient light to reflect beautifully off the blue glass.
