The terrain of Tucson offers up roughedges and hardscrabble surfaces. It’s no wonder the family to whom this kitchen belongs wanted a chic oasis to contrast with the mountainous desert vista viewed outside the home’s windows.
The architect for this home created a structure with crisp lines, hard edges, and cool surfaces. Lori Carroll of Lori Carroll & Associates was inspired by the architect’s use of materials, which became the jumping-off points for her design inspiration. The exposed beams, the sandy brick tones, and the use of natural light all played a part in her choices of texture, color, and materials.
“This was the second home where I worked with these clients, so there was a great relationship between us,” Carroll says. “They trusted me, so they let me do my thing.”
You can understand their trust, considering how the inspired choice of bright green contrasts so beautifully with the steely gray that dominates the room. “My addition of green tones to the room brought a ‘pow’ of color to the palette,” Carroll says. “We found a carpet for their office [in another part of the house] that had that color in it. That’s where we pulled the accent.” The green shows up in the wall at the far end of the room and in the vibrant accessories on the display shelves. The lemons, limes, and daisies add a citrus pop to the palette.
