what we did
It was a treat for KDS to collaborate on a new construction project with an Israeli family in Cupertino. The clients had discerning taste and an impeccable eye for details. The choice of each item was deliberate from paint, drapery, molding, cabinetry, stair accents, rugs, and more.
The overall look is clean traditional with layers upon layers of earthy neutrals and punches of color. There is a soft elegance to the whole house that is very reflective of the lovely family we were working with.
Of course, near and dear to our hearts is the kitchen. Our homeowners chose a slate-stained maple for contrast and richness. To unify the large spaces, the same cabinetry was used at the opposite end by the family room fireplace. And, while going to the ceiling for cabinetry is impressive, sometimes it can be too imposing and impractical. That was the case here, so we capped the upper cabinetry at a still impressive height of nine feet, but was easily accessible for one of our petite homeowners using a ladder.
Finishing touches were creamy marble countertops, Sonoma stone mosaic backsplash, sleek and minimal Legrand light switches and outlets, Mirage nougat hardwood floor, mercury glass pendant lights, and Restoration Hardware furniture.
