Inspired by the craft of building and architecture
Tuesday, January 15, 2013
It's all about the existing elements in this kitchen cave. There are always crazy challenges in building and design and in this example it's all about the stone work. Classic, rustic, detailed and badass. Old European craftsmanship you rarely come across. This is where you embrace the conditions and get after it.
You can't hang cabinets so strategically run some base units along with an island and incorporate some freestanding pieces. The overall lighting is weak so hide any new electrical behind base units and "wash" the walls with some up lighting. Keep the color tones neutral and let the stone speak for itself.
I'm a 3rd generation home builder and remodeler in Birmingham, Michigan. I have a passion for the way things were back when we started Capaldi Building in 1945. Back when homes were literally built from scratch and guys ate homemade sandwiches out of tin lunch pails. The art and craft of building is something that inspires me every day. I hope that this blog inspires more people to take pride in the space they call home.
