New Traditional —
Two Toned and Extra Tall
When celebrity designer Jonathan Scott envisioned the kitchen of this 100-year-old New Orleans double shotgun home he was renovating for his popular network TV show Brothers Take New Orleans, he wanted it to feel like it was original to the era in which it was built, yet functional for today’s families. He accomplished that by opting for double-stacked upper cabinets with wide crown molding that took advantage of the kitchen’s height, and sleek dark lowers to add interest. He used the Atkins door profile in this kitchen, with design assistance from New Orleans-area Campbell Cabinet Co., painted White on the uppers and Tru Black on the lowers.
Tall ceilings left room for double-stacked upper cabinetry with wide crown molding in this New Orleans kitchen. The Tru Black lower cabinets complement the black crown molding between the wall and ceiling.
Pots, Pans, and a Peninsula
Deep drawers give easy access to pots and pans, and a waterfall edge peninsula provides a great place for gathering in the heart of the home.
A conveniently-located hidden garbage cabinet is adjacent to the sink and slide-in stainless steel oven, which keeps the look seamless. The textured gray subway tile backsplash adds visual interest and provides the perfect transition from white to black cabinets.
Pops of Color
Emerald green pendant lights add a pop of color and offset the blues and grays in this New Traditional NOLA kitchen.
