Mizuki is an Asian influenced styling Premier developed. It is typically designed with a transitional-contemporary intent. Jennifer Gilmer of Jennifer Gilmer Kitchen & Bath designed several gorgeous Mizuki projects, all specifying diverse woods and finishes.
This particular kitchen won Jennifer a National Award in 2009. Jennifer discusses the specifics of the project in the Secrets Revealed section of her design blog. It is a fascinating read as she reflects on her objectives concerning material selection, color, layout, and functionality.
One design highlight is how Jennifer incorporated a highly functional, round table into the room. Since the kitchen opens up to the family room, space for a formal dining area simply wasn’t available. Her answer was a custom table that “connects” to the island or “rolls away” to serve as a separate dining piece. When the table is pulled away, the island’s bench seating is revealed!
