Suzanne Dimma's New Cabinetry

A mix of painted and natural wood adds interest.

H&H editor-in-chief Suzanne Dimma and her husband Arriz Hassam originally disagreed on whether to choose natural or painted wood for their new kitchen cabinetry. "I like natural wood in the kitchen," Arriz says. "It adds warmth and ages well." Suzanne wanted soft grey painted cabinetry throughout, but ultimately agreed that "on everything it would have been a bit predictable. Somehow the wood has so much more personality." The space also features a new marble backsplash and countertops that create a chic bistro vibe.
