Fabulous Room Friday 01.06.12

Kitchen and Bath 1

For the first “Fabulous Room” of 2012, I’ve selected this simply stunning kitchen designed by the uber talented, Benjamin Dhong. I always love the chic spaces Benjamin creates and was so excited when I visited his website the other day and saw that he had added new projects. I love the warm palette he’s chosen to pair with classic elements like the traditional cabinetry, crisp subway tile and marble countertops. The clean lines of the island add a modern element and the pops of yellow really tie everything together. The fabulous oversized globe pendant is truly the jewelry in the room.

Love the kitchen. A punch of yellow is great in the kitchen. Would have made a great addition to my post on adding yellow to your home. Great designer.

I love that banquette! It would be amazing to sit and have breakfast there every morning. I also think the mirrored cabinets look gorgeous and unique. Really beautiful tile and flooring as well. Just so clean and relaxing.

Had an old manager who loved all things horses, she even owned some. I wonder if she would like that stool at the breakfast nook?

Benjamin Dhong said...

Thank you Paloma for such a wonderful honor!

We just loved creating this kitchen! The client was a young family from the east coast so we wanted it to be traditional but with a fresh vibe.

Happy New Year to you and all your readers!

Its a very nice design. The stool/chair with horse's legs is something out of the ordinary (for me!). I just pity it if someone overweight sits on it. Can just imagine the legs giving way.

designchic said...

It's fabulous. Love the statement making chandelier, and the pop of color in the tolix stools is wonderful!!

Aymrzz said...

Does anyone know where to get this light fixture?

Paloma Contreras said...

@Aymrzz I'm not sure about this specific fixture, but Circa Lighting has several very similar pieces.
