Kansas City Kitchen with a Taste of Tuscany: A Design Connection, Inc. Featured Project
I am so excited to share our gorgeous kitchen project from this Tuscan-style Kansas City home. The 30’ brick barrel ceiling is a must-see!
After a lifetime of world travel, my clients are settling down in their newly finished Kansas City home. They wanted their dream home to convey the flavors of their favorite places; imagine Tuscany with a European flair, old world craftsmanship with luxury conveniences.
While some clients need help pinpointing their style, some clients come in with amazing and detailed ideas. This homeowner’s vision of a grand barrel ceiling with red brick was the perfect starting point. Installation took an entire month with every single brick laid by the hands of one incredibly talented and fearless mason. Not only was his work impressive, it was impressive watching him work–laying bricks on a ceiling 30 feet up on scaffolding!
This herringbone patterned brick barrel ceiling set the stage for the ornate embellishments featured in the woodwork throughout this exquisite home.
From the rich maple finish of the kitchen cabinets and the aged, dark brown European finish on the island, to the intricate carvings that frame the window, every square inch of this kitchen was designed with the clients’ ideal in mind.
The tile design above the stove centers this space and delicately enhances the imported Italian tiled backsplash which flows throughout this expansive Tuscan-inspired dream kitchen.
This spacious great room is open to the expansive kitchen, sharing the 30′ red brick barrel ceiling. The intricate carvings and the aged, dark brown European finish on the kitchen island are mirrored in the custom-built entertainment center in order to creating balance, symmetry, and to further unify this impressive space. The furniture was selected for comfort and style, and was customized to fit the scale of this Tuscan-inspired great room.
