Over the winter, Liza Riguerra of Riguerra Design had Sean Dagen photograph a gorgeous, modern Palo Alto home, and we’re so excited that their work went on to win an award in the 2016 NKBA Northern California Chapter Design Competition.
“We hired Sean to showcase the beautiful features of the kitchen,” Liza told us, “including the blue island that ‘pops’ and the detailed glass mosaic tile around the range hood that adds texture and creates a dramatic focal point.” The kitchen satisfied the design challenge of creating a space for a couple with competing tastes. She wanted a sleek gray area, but he found that to be too cold and stark. Liza’s solution? “Blue-gray hues juxtaposed against the warm, custom finish of the to-the-ceiling cabinetry,” which created a contemporary style that was still welcoming. Since the family loves to entertain and cook vegetarian meals, the kitchen also features several drawers and cabinets, a quartz-topped island and professional-grade appliances.
