We’re featured on Clarke Living’s Top 10 Kitchens

Haddad Hakansson is honored to be included on Clarke’s latest top 10 kitchens list!

Our Newman Project finished second in Clarke’s Wolf/SubZero regional design contest in 2016. The homeowners wanted a modern kitchen that reflected their love of antiques. Storage solutions include a wall of tall cabinets, including an appliance garage with a lift up door and a fully integrated Sub-Zero refrigerator, a newly framed pantry closet and a dry bar – located in a previously empty space – that looks like one of the homeowners’ antique pieces. While the Wolf Induction Range is sleek and ultra modern, it also recedes, allowing the dramatic antiqued hood in a blackened steel finish to serve as a focal point.

Instant Drama: Painting Your Ceilings Black

An article this weekend on Houzz.com listed 11 reasons to paint your celing black.
