Northern Michigan's 2013 Ultimate Up North Kitchen Tour: #8, Classic, Meet Contemporary in Traverse City
Designer: Marty Rhein, CKD, CBD, BAC Design Group, 231.941.0014, BACDesignTC.com
BAC Design Group’s senior designer, Marty Rhein, collaborated with artisans and craftsmen to blend the homeowners’ love for contemporary and traditional style into one cohesively classic kitchen in this hilltop Traverse City home with its stunning views of Grand Traverse Bay.
Classic details in the semi-custom cabinets consist of inset and full-overlay style construction, as well as countertops fabricated with both quartz and granite materials. Stainless steel appliances, satin-nickel plumbing fixtures and pewter hardware combine to lend a polished finish to this Traverse City home. The off-white painted and pewter-glazed outer cabinets complement the custom gray-stained island base, as do perimeter warm gray quartz countertops. The island’s granite top unifies the home’s neutral tones into one cohesive visual theme. A modern pattern of slate and glass tile in the backsplash echoes the slate flooring in the beautiful four-season room just off the kitchen. The overall neutral-toned finishes are contemporary, yet classic and successfully bring the Traverse City area outdoors in.
