To illuminate the ultimate in luxury living, enter Chateau Anmore and feast your eyes on the craftmanship and details of the grand kitchen, designed by HAVAN member Sublime Interior Design with builder Blaze Holdings.
Your eyes will immediately be drawn to the La Cornue range and custom vent hood, which—centred between the kitchen backsplash highlighting bookend-matched Calacatta gold marble stone slabs—anchors the kitchen’s design details.
The ornate design of the range is carried throughout the room with harmonizing tones of gold and black hardware adorning the custom-built solid wood cabinetry and creating a natural break along the panelled white walls.
However, it is the oversized custom-built island that takes centre stage. The back-lit Italian-quartz-countertop island, complete with LED light channels along the edging, appears to float in the middle of the room. Adorned with nine custom-designed chairs tucked perfectly into the island, ease of access is possible without encumbering the room’s flow. A mirrored base further blurs the line between floor and island, elevating the sense of floating.
Gazing up, your eye catches the ultimate in custom lighting. A Nella Vetrina gold chandelier, imported from Italy, warms the room, while adding sparkle and whimsy to the surrounding crisp white cabinetry. Offset by a wall-papered ceiling and detailed crown moulding, the room is grounded with imported pure white Italian marble floors.
Complete with hidden wok room, plus a private entry from the garage via mudroom, concealed doors create a seamless transition, keeping all the arduous work from the sight line, but remaining within arm’s reach for the ultimate in functionality.
Adjacent to the family room and private outdoor patio and gardens, light pours across the room, showcasing the kitchen’s natural and harmonious environment, created by a fastidious attention to craftmanship and design detail.
By collaborating with the professionals, everything is as it should be—illuminated.
