Kitchen for Doug Atherley’s Residence
The breakfast area is subtle and muted, letting the city view command attention. Mick designed the handsome bar in ebony walnut. In this showcase kitchen, he expertly mixes materials, proportions, and textures. He says, “We coordinated the finish of this kitchen with everything the designer was doing. This is our BeauxArts.02 line, which includes high-gloss finishes in truffle brown, so it’s a darker taupe-gray color along with high-gloss ebonized walnut. All of the tall pieces, the refrigeration, and the pantry unit have this finish.”
