Design inspiration can come from many quarters. But it was a favourite piece of jewellery that sparked the design of this remodelled kitchen in a house owned by Nancy and Robert Cohen.

Elina Katsioula-Beall of DeWitt Designer Kitchens says Nancy came into her studio wearing an amethyst pendant set in silver.

"She was very excited and said these were the colours she wanted for her new kitchen lavender and purple, mixed with graphite and black. Our search for materials started right there."

Custom drawer storage maximises the new cooking corner in this new kitchen. The countertops are a mix of glass and Lavender Mist granite. The design is by Elina Katsioula-Beall of DeWitt Designer Kitchens.

But the new kitchen was not just about the look. It was also about improving the functionality for the owner, who loves to bake. The U-shaped layout was changed so the space could be maximised lengthwise. A corner cooking and prep area was introduced and a new island was added, with bar stools at one end.

But it is the materials that really spell the difference for this kitchen. Katsioula-Beall says the amethyst inspired the glass top on the curved end and one side of the island.

"Violet lighting in the glass replicates the client's favourite gemstone. We teamed this with Lavender Mist granite benches and lilac glass mosaics, which line the concave alcove behind the cooktop. Matching curved soffits, mauve wallpaper and a custom wall mosaic of a cherry blossom echo these tones."

Dark graphite rift-cut oak cabinets, and pantry doors in black alder help to balance the more colourful elements the floor is also graphite oak planks. The refrigerator is concealed behind a Japanese tansu-style armoire with black and grey lattice panels, and the dishwasher is also integrated. Other stainless steel Miele appliances provide a flash of silver, just like the jewellery.

"The pantry, coffee centre and microwave are all mid height to provide improved access for the owner, who cannot reach high storage," says Katsioula-Beall.
