CJM Builders kicked this kitchen up a notch in just a few short weeks through hard work, planning, and an amazing client-design collaboration. Chestnut Street marries a clean white aesthetic with moody accent colors to create the sought-after design palette many clients are looking for this year.

No client can go wrong with a crisp white kitchen, but 2021 has shown us homeowners are warming up to the idea of adding more visual interest in their homes through the use of color. The custom kitchen design of the Chestnut Street project does just that, pairing minimalistic-white upper cabinetry against a row of dark gray lowers sporting deep blue undertones. A glazed ceramic backsplash tile in light gray breaks up the white-on-white visual and delivers a high-end feel to the space. Black industrial hardware adds another visual layer through its bold contrast against the bright cabinetry and Carrara-style quartz countertop. The mix of materials keeps the whole kitchen design feeling modern, but approachable.

In-house CJM designer and project quarterback Bree spearheaded the design of Chestnut Street, and worked closely with the homeowners to help curate their color palette. Bree doubled as a project manager driving the execution of the project from demo to details in just a few weeks.

“The homeowners came into this project with a vision, but also an open mind when it came to optimizing their space to best fit their family’s function. Their receptiveness to CJM’s guidance and their collaborative spirit made this an amazing transformation we’re all enormously proud of!”

The result? An amazing kitchen design that delivers a classic white aesthetic with a touch of modern warmth. It is an elevated version of the farmhouse design that has evolved from the rustic trends we saw throughout the 2010s.
