You may or may not recall the well-known 1970’s single “Nights in White Satin” by the Moody Blues. No? Well, that’s okay. For, the transformation of this Bedford, Mass kitchen illustrates the outline of the song in question perfectly. Amany Hanna, the designer on this project, took a single-family home in the heart of Boston’s beautiful suburban, woodland area out from the 1970’s and into a mellifluous tune that is more reminiscent of now…and well…forever. Enter a night in white satin. Or maybe even: kitchen breakfasts in white and grey satin finishes. Go with me here.
Amany worked closely with her clients and our European, German partners Leicht kitchens in conceptualizing the ideal kitchen for the space provided. Wave bye-bye to dated wood laminate and hello to Alpine Grey and Merino lacquered door fronts. Brushed nickel handles and pulls accent the gleam of a the custom-painted gray back splash. Similarly, interesting interior accessories such as the magic corner cabinet + handle-less under island compartments make this gleaming kitchen modern from the inside out.
Other defining features in this kitchen’s renovation start with the stunning waterfall-edge island counter top. The counter material was sourced from Cambria, and is a whole-hear-ted nod to the benefits of recent innovations under the engineered stone umbrella (yes I agree, that was a mouthful to even type). Furthermore, the breakfast nook comprises of Leicht kitchens + their bench seating in a Stone Oak finish. The bench seats are affixed with pull out drawers below to maximize storage throughout the kitchen. Next, Amany integrated modern outlets throughout the space with the help of modern outlet manufacturers Silites and Task Lighting (The Task Power Strip). The walls of the kitchen gleam of fresh paint: cheers to “Silver Dollar” by Benjamin Moore. And, while a laundry list of details went into this Divine kitchen makeover, we leave you with the appliances: Thermador steals the show with their gas range, single oven, and integrated refrigerator, and dishwasher. Also, take note to the integrated island speed oven from Bosch.

"My kitchen required a complete design change in order to have it function effectively. With Mariette’s help, we were able to double our cabinet space, triple our counter space and retain our eat-in-area – all without adding any square footage! Mariette was able to understand and design what we wanted for our kitchen, while contributing ideas which enhanced the project. In addition, all the materials she supplied (cabinets, countertops, hardware etc) were of superior quality. Further, Mariette’s part of the project was completed on time and on budget!"
