This Chef’s Kitchen Stuns With Glass-Fronted Cabinets
Personal chef Jennifer’s kitchen was dark and heavy, and not suited for her culinary career. As a food blogger, recipe developer and personal chef, she wanted something functional and timeless, so she hired designer Ashley Shaanan. Ashley turned it into a European-style space mixed with modern minimalism. “We made it very light with white floors and white walls, then added black accents,” says Ashley. “But we also wanted to maintain the beautiful mouldings and character that came with the home.”

A super-sized island and two sinks make an ideal work zone for the homeowner. “Jennifer does personal cooking for clients, and she’s also a food blogger who develops recipes,” says Ashley. “She’s been planning her dream kitchen forever.”
Glass-fronted cabinets allow Jennifer to show off her beautiful collections and find what she needs easily. The hunter green color on the island adds a heritage feel to the space.

A floating shelf keeps frequently in-demand items off the countertop, creating more workspace.
Ashley designed the textured vent hood to look seamless with the kitchen walls.
