Paul Rand said, “Design is the method of putting form and content together. Design, just as art, has multiple definitions; there is no single definition. Design can be art. Design can be aesthetics. Design is so simple, that’s why it is so complicated”. The pictures of this kitchen demonstrate representations of where we see design taking us. Ten years ago, ostentatious ornamentation was the theme of the day. More was always better.
Now, we are seeing understated simplicity; gray color tones, seamless counter top transitions accented by well thought out hardware and moulding selections create the tranquil environments that people are longing for. The capability of a manufacturer that was demonstrated in past years by cabinet gymnastics are now proven with finesse, attention to detail, and material selections. Skilled casework execution is demonstrated here by the pristine door margins and finessed texture of the hand brushed milk paint. However, the real design statement is made by the use of aesthetics, form and function to create an environment that is inviting to all.
