Blueprint for Improvement: Cosmopolitan Carmel kitchen


Built in 1992, this home is in downtown Carmel. The new owners were eager to change the dated kitchen finishes to something more sophisticated.

  • The star of the show is the gold brushstroke backsplash tile, which was laid in an artful pattern.
  • Other fashion-forward features include a pink ombre faucet and dramatic golden light fixture.
  • The quartz countertop sits atop sleek acrylic-front cabinets; a custom corbel was designed to support the breakfast bar.
  • Storage solutions include built-in utensil dividers, drawers for plates and bowls and a custom cabinet to maximize space behind the refrigerator.
