Dimma designed this kitchen with her husband, 3rd Uncle Design principal Arriz Hassam.
"My cottage kitchen is still a work in progress," says House & Home editor Suzanne Dimma. "The counters and cupboards are Ikea, but we had the drawers custom finished in a warm grey colour and fashioned the waterfall countertop on the island out of a few standard sized butcher-block counters for a unique look. What you can't tell about this kitchen is that the fridge and the lighting runs on solar power and the stove is propane — meaning no hydro bills. But the highlight is the view through all of the windows. I am still looking for a Kilim carpet and a light fixture for over the island and the fridge is about to be surrounded in open shelving for a hit of display."
