Mediterranean Kitchens

The dramatic stainless steel range hood accentuates the high ceilings in this contemporary kitchen.

Removing existing walls and opening up this kitchen to the adjacent living areas maximized the space and allows for gracious entertaining.

This kitchen was fastidiously laid out following the requirements of a chef--movement from the storage area to the prep to cooking and cleaning, all with careful consideration of the ergonomics involved.

Sleek and contemporary cabinet designs were selected to enhance the already modern atmosphere of this kitchen, located in a former home of the late Julia Child.

A butcher-block island, complete with wine storage, is the centerpiece of this small but functional French country kitchen. The worn pine floors, painted cabinetry and tile countertops add to the charm.

This kitchen design is a fine example of my FusionDesign philosophy in practice. It subtly blends contemporary European elements with soothing Asian accents like the glass shoji screen doors and Zen water feature, while offering increased functionality for the American lifestyle.

Drastically changing the configuration of this area transformed it from a dark, rectilinear space into a warm, inviting one that revolves around the circular center island and outer workspace.

A built-in banquette maximizes the seating area in this Victorian kitchen renovation. Cabinetry detailing and historic reproduction lighting help the new addition feel like part of the original historic home.

A peninsula and a maple top island (foreground) provide abundant counter space in this efficient and roomy kitchen. Expansive windows along the back of the house lead to the garden and bluestone patio
