This rustic kitchen design balances the rustic and the streamlined. Designed by architect Don Ziebell and designer Inga L. Rehmann of Oz Architects, this Provençal-inspired kitchen is located in Scottsdale Arizona.
By tailoring the adjacent morning room and pavilion to accommodate large groups, the kitchen “could stay intimate. It’s the best of both worlds,” the designer says.
The island is poured- pewter and will take on a beautiful patina over time as the surface changes from pale silver to a dark grey. The reclaimed-oak ceilings were sourced in France and bring an authentic vibe to the space. Limestone from Provence was used for the counter and floor tiles. The stone walls add a rustic feel to the space. With the textured walls, Ziebell wanted the cabinets to be a “quiet, reserved moment.”
Since the clients don’t have many family-size meals, Rehmann shrank the footprint of the island and turned the space into a conversation area. The wing-back chairs “are a comfy spot for them to sip drinks and chat,” she says. The 1800s Spanish trestle table doesn’t have a French pedigree, but Rehmann couldn’t resist its rough-hewn appeal. After paint was stripped off, it was mounted on risers with the original ball feet reattached, boosting it to counter height.
