Rustic charm and subtle hints of modern design come together in this beautiful home on the South Shore of Long Island. While the style and sophistication says “Hamptons,” we’re about 60 miles and several beaches away in Nassau County.
Marty and Robin Sininsky of Bellmore are incredibly proud of their kitchen, designed and supplied by Green Art of Freeport, NY. “We wanted to continue the antique theme found throughout our home,” says Robin, “but at the same time, incorporate some modern utility.”
The room boasts DuraSupreme cabinets from floor to ceiling in Antique White with Espresso Glaze – a color that matches nicely with their dining room set just a few feet away – along with Oil-Rubbed Bronze knobs and handles for a distinctive look. Installing glass doors and lights in the top row makes for an artistic touch, allowing more ornate pieces to be seen. The cabinets surround the center island as well, which houses the Wolf cooktop with a down draft that recesses into the counter when not in use, proving that classic and contemporary can coexist.
Underneath the wall-mounted cabinets, we find lighting which creates a better view when working on the granite countertops. We also find power strips for electrical appliances and charging stations. Helen Murray, Certified Kitchen Designer at Green Art, says, “This is both an elegant and functional approach as wall outlets tend to cause wire damage or become unusable when they are directly behind an appliance and, to put it simply, they are not very pretty to look at!” With the power strips set just under the cabinets, they are hidden from direct view yet even more accessible.
The under-mounted Blanco sink and Moen brushed nickel faucet set against the Tumbled Limestone backsplash tile is another reminder of the contrasting yet harmonious concept of the Sininsky’s kitchen. A Thermador refrigerator takes on the same design as the cabinets, keeping the aesthetics consistent and making this kitchen a true work of art.
