A statement piece fulfills a necessary function in this blue-and-white kitchen.
It started off to fill a practical need—to hide a last-minute change to the electrical work—but the white-oak-veneer bulkhead above the statuarietto-marble-topped island wound up being a design highlight in this Vancouver kitchen. “It emphasizes the hits of warm colours elsewhere and blocks out the central region,” explains interior designer Tanya Krpan, who designed this masculine country-style kitchen with her builder husband, Jure. She chose oversized Arteriors pendant lights to balance out this eye-catching element (“They add another dimension to the space,” she says), but the glass fixtures keep sightlines clear (and reference the glass-doored china cabinets built into the blue-grey millwork).
