Marrimor Interiors brings the glam to this White Rock kitchen.
Bring a glam factor where it’s typical to default to practicality. This kitchen, part of a new-build in White Rock, B.C., is large and functional to accommodate the homeowners’ joy of cooking, baking and entertaining—but it also exudes their love of Art Deco/Old Hollywood.
The backsplash is actually made from a slab of Laminam, an ultra-durable product that is often used in exterior cladding. “It’s a good reminder to always consider the less obvious options when sourcing materials,” says Bugliarisi. Photo: Ema Peter.
“Functionality aside, our goal was to create room for them to display and decorate,” says designer Lauren Bugliarisi of Marrimor Interiors. “We gave them a floor-to-ceiling open-shelving stack that bookends the kitchen, and included a display shelf that spans the feature hood fan.” The drama of that marble hood fan extends to brass-inlay finger pulls and white globe pendants that “have a little bit of everything to tie it all together,” says Bugliarisi.
