In partnership with Bosch Home Appliances, we challenged ourselves to style a newly remodeled New England kitchen three ways to reflect a change of mood and season. Last week we conjured a Japanese-inspired look. (See: Sponsored: A Japanese-Inflected Kitchen with Bosch Home Appliances). This week we reimagined the same space with a Scandinavian vibe.
Because the kitchen has a monochrome palette and a full suite of ultra-minimal, Bauhaus-inspired Bosch appliances, it lends itself to a variety of looks (perfect for the restless aesthete). Read on to learn more.
Above: The Plymouth, Massachusetts, kitchen was recently remodeled by architect Sheila Bonnell with all-new Bosch appliances. To capture the airy feel of many Scandinavian homes, we choose a pared-down palette including bone whites and warm woods, with just a touch of indigo and fresh greens.
Above: With its low profile, a Bosch Gas Cooktop integrates seamlessly with the honed granite countertops. On the shelves above, we added a characterful mix of vintage lab ware and a hand-formed Set of Three Nesting Bowls from White Forest Pottery. On the stove sits Staub’s Essential Oven in white enamel from Sur La Table, $150; a Hand-Carved Spoon from Black Creek Mercantile, $120; and a hand-formed plate by Lari Washburn.
Above: To maintain the clean lines of the kitchen, Bonnell choose a Bosch Wall Oven in stainless steel, which is designed to integrate with standard counters. Vintage pieces such as the pitcher, colander, and Valencia dinnerware by Arabia Finland complement the modern appliances.
Above: Because good design is equal parts beauty and function, architect Bonnell chose a Bosch Downdraft Hood, which discreetly lowers when the stove is not in use.
Above: Warm woods and cool evergreens evoke the fresh air of a Nordic winter.
Above: Another clever feature of the seamless design: A Bosch Dishwasher completely disappears behind a paneled door, cut to look like drawers.
Above: A simple vignette with a vintage French bread basket, Swedish tea towels, and a touch of Scandi red in the greens creates a homey feel.
