Designer Gloria Graham-Sollecito of ArtfulKitchens.net recently featured a BLANCO IKON® Apron Front sink in a beautifully designed Florida kitchen remodel for one of her clients. We caught up with Gloria to ask her a few questions about her new design project. Check out our interview and kitchen photos below.
Q: Beautiful job on this kitchen! Did a certain theme inspire you when creating your design?:
A: My client wanted a fresh updated look that would blend with their Midcentury Modern Florida home.
Q: What was the biggest design challenge you faced while creating this space?
A: The biggest challenges were the fact that we were dealing with “old house issues” that you don’t discover until demo, such as electrical problems and termites. One should always make allowances for these unexpected discoveries when working with older homes. We also had to decide what Midcentury elements to keep and which could be improved upon.
Q: What is your favorite thing about this design and how did BLANCO help bring it to life?
A: My favorite thing about the kitchen is that it pays homage to the heritage of the home while allowing my clients the technology and aesthetics of a twenty first century kitchen, this includes the BLANCO IKON® sink which is a traditional element re-invented. From the moment I showed my clients these products they were sold. Great product design which is well thought out as well as beautiful is a double win for client and designer.
