Riverdale, New York
A family of five, was looking to renovate their outdated kitchen in the heart of Riverdale new York. Riverdale is an amazing community right on the Hudson River in the Bronx, just North of Manhattan. It attracts nature lovers of all kinds due to the green lush landscape and Hudson view.
STACKED STONE WALL: It was important to this family, to bring in the elements of their outdoor patio and garden off the kitchen, into their interior. The stacked stone was the first element that was continued into the space, as well as the real slate flooring throughout the kitchen.
DINETTE: Custom built by Michael McHale, this industrial chic chandelier over the dining table is made up of a mix of rough metal pipe and Swarovski crystals, mixing industrial with refined elegance. It sits under a skylight, and reflects a rainbow of colors and light over the table.
RANGE WALL: A hammered copper vent over the range, as well as a hammered copper farm sink, added a rustic, handmade appeal to the kitchen. The backsplash is a mix of tumbled Jerusalem gold stone, with a border throughout that pops up over the range area. The border is made up of 2 burnished metal pencil liner tiles, with a square, multi color glass mosaic in the center.
BAR: The cabinetry was custom designed and built out of cherry wood, and accented with oil rubbed bronze hardware to match the main kitchen. The countertops are a rich golden sea granite, which is the same as the flooring that connects to the kitchen from the dining area.
