Wendy Sutter's New York kitchen was cramped and dark, which as many city dwellers know is not unusual, unfortunately, for urban kitchens. The cellist, who is a collaborator (as well as partner) of composer Philip Glass, loves cooking and worked with designer Luke Mulvey to make the space reflect her passion for the activity that takes place within.
The job was not a teardown - it's scope was limited to new design details only. Projects such as this one are a testament to the power of new colors, surfaces and updated cabinets and appliances. An open design and reflective finishes keep things light and bright while textural and rich details add a beautiful, somewhat exotic flavor to the room.
Like the look? Luke shared his sources with us.
