Mixed Metals And A Pop of Color For A Stunning Kitchen

by | Architecture, Before & After, Kitchens, Remodeling

Have you ever been so inspired by a photo that you wanted to recreate it in your own home? That’s exactly what happened for this St. Louis, south-city homeowner. After falling in love with a kitchen she saw in a photo, she enlisted the help of Mosby Building Arts to design a fresh, white kitchen with a beautiful blue center island. Since it was a straight-forward remodel, her kitchen was the perfect canvas for a semi-custom Right Kitchen by Mosby. Mosby simply pulled everything old out and installed all new cabinets, countertops, and appliances. And the final kitchen is gorgeous!


Mosby maximized storage in the small space by adding pantry cabinets around the refrigerator and a new row of cabinets and countertops on one side of the kitchen. The homeowner loved white subway tile but didn’t want the traditional horizontal look, so she chose to have the 3’ x 6’ backsplash tile lay in a herringbone pattern. The eye-catching pattern runs from the countertop all the way up to the ceiling and gives the kitchen a design “wow” moment.

The focal point of the kitchen is a rich navy island with beautiful gold finishes. The homeowner loved the idea of mixing metals, and the stainless appliances coordinate wonderfully with the brushed gold pulls on the cabinets and island. A marbled quartz countertop was added on the perimeter cabinets and the island features a custom walnut butcher block top.

The homeowner’s favorite addition to the kitchen is a new coffee bar located by the microwave. Mosby Designer Jenn Lewis was able to widen the cramped space along one wall, enough to create a cozy café corner.
