Style: DP CONTEMPORARY
Designer: Patrick Baglino, Jr.
This is the winning kitchen and dining room design from HGTV's Showhouse Showdown. The kitchen and dining room space is designed with the intention of creating a space where family and friends can gather informally. A custom table with a stainless steel base, a brushed aluminum chandelier, Silestone countertops made with crushed pieces of mirror in it, a central brushed aluminum exhaust hood and a glamourous mosaic tile silver backsplash carries a common design element of sparkling silver throughout the space. The silver details and furnishings add sparkle and excitement to the space and really stand out noticeably against the rich blue painted walls. The windows are kept simple through the use of solar shades, while the front dining area window is dressed with uncomplicated yet bold, contemporary geometric-patterned fabric and neutral drapery sheers. The gray hardwood floor is the perfect foundation to complement the cool colors of the kitchen. It is also a nice juxtaposition to the light-colored countertops, accessories, upholstery fabric on the dining chairs and the window treatments which are all ivory and white.
