A Dash of Contrast

Cinnamon and sugar are the sweet hues that dominate this Englewood kitchen. Glen Lumia and his design team created detailed cabinetry in off-white to complement a cherry hood and center island. The hues are also repeated in the cream stone back-splash and rich granite countertops. “It’s not uncommon nowadays to use multiple colors,” says Lumia, president of Creative Design Construction and Remodeling in Northvale. “It gives us the opportunity to highlight a focal point.”

Here, that focal point is the hood, which Lumia designed to resemble a mantelpiece with rope molding and a center medallion. Besides taking center stage, it cleverly hides the duct work and also houses two pull-out spice racks that sit on each side of the stove top.
