“We used Nero Gold Stone from ABC World Wide Stone that we had cut by PR stone and installed by StudioMAK − all of which did an amazing job,” said Scarpidis, adding that this bathroom took only four weeks to complete. Photo Credit: Kohler Co.

“The overall goal in the kitchen was for a wow-factor space that felt sleek and fresh but also comfortable and functional,” said designer Robert Bakes from New York City, N.Y.- Bakes & Kropp Fine Cabinetry. Photography by Jenna Bascom
The kitchen was originally designed to feature a second sink and concealed dishwasher along one wall. During renovation, a large metal beam was discovered underneath, making the necessary plumbing impossible. The cabinetry was quickly reimagined, and a wine fridge and concealed double waste bin became great solutions for the space. Photography by Jenna Bascom
Textured glass inserts and Silestone countertops in the kitchen and metal mesh inserts in the pantry are special details that add a bit of texture and shine to the kitchen. Photography by Jenna Bascom
“Our favorite and by far the fan-favorite is our concealed pantry door,” said Bakes. “Closed, the entry blends seamlessly with the rest of the wall and looks like two separate tall doors. With a soft push, the door glides inward, triggers the automatic LED lighting and reveals a gorgeous hallway and pantry − complete with coffee and wine stations and ample storage.” Photography by Jenna Bascom
