Looking for a change of scenery, Maria-Paula (Mapi) Garcia, a consultant for social impact organizations, decided to fulfill her dream of living on the water. After taking the plunge on a duplex one block from the beach in Miami, it was time to realize another dream: a bold kitchen where her daughters, Amelia and Eva, could be a part of the action. “I’m pretty much always cooking, and having the girls right here makes life so much better,” she says.

Space to Get Cooking

When Mapi expanded the kitchen, she added an electric cooktop to the peninsula. Designer Ann Ueno suggested putting wood panels on the base; they’re from The Home Depot and were stained to match the shelves.

Wall-to-Wall Wow

Custom open shelves hold Mapi’s dishware, including pieces from Colombia, where she was born. The modern geometric tile, from Ann Sacks, extends to the ceiling for added drama.

Glam Brass Accents

The cowhide barstools, from Perigold, were a splurge, but Mapi loves the look. “Even though little kids live here, it’s a grown-up kitchen!” she says. More luxe details: black and brass pendants from Mitzi tie in with cabinet pulls from Rejuvenation.

Big Blue

“I know white kitchens are better for resale, but I want to keep this apartment forever, and I love, love, love color,” Mapi says. For the cabinets, refrigerator and door, she chose a bright navy (Commodore by Sherwin-Williams) inspired by her favorite restaurant, Red Rooster, which is decorated in primary colors. The break from the blue: 45-bottle stainless steel Zephyr wine fridge.
