Tuscan Jewell Kitchen

a place to gather…


This beautiful Tuscan kitchen, located in Beulah, CO was created for a large Italian family who loves to cook together while visiting their family retreat.   The custom cabinets where meticulously built by Brad Martin, CHF Hardwood Products, Inc.  Finished in an ivory lacquer and hand glazed, these cabinets are accented by a custom, laser cut, iron crown molding.  The opposite wall of medium stained pantry cabinets brings warmth and function to this gathering place.  Blum soft close hinges and drawer glides make every door and drawer easy to use. Designed with specific work areas in mind, the kitchen includes two large islands, each with a sink, giving plenty of space for everyone to work on the family meal.  In addition, there a Beverage Center off of the main kitchen area that includes a Miele espresso maker, wine refrigerator, 2 refrigerator drawers and an ample amount of cabinetry for storage of glassware, dishes and overflow cookware.  The decorative copper sink and iridescent accent tile design give this space its own character.  Appliances for this kitchen include a 48” Viking Range, Double Viking Oven with a warming drawer, 2 Miele dishwashers, a GE icemaker, Sharp microwave drawer and an in the counter mixing/blender station.

Lynne and Brad Martin were a breath of fresh air in our search for a professional’s opinion.

In 2007, we began our search for a professional designer to remodel a 20 year old kitchen. We searched four different kitchen designers to assist us. What I found was the job was too big, the job was too small, or let us put in new cabinets. That is not what we wanted. We wanted a new Tuscan look with a striking first glance appeal, something different. Lynne and Brad designed the most striking and workable kitchen, for both large parties of 30 or more to the convenient “let’s cook up something for the two of us.”

Lynne and Brad gave us their full attention and professional guidance. Lynne drafted the design with a floor plan, three dimensional designs, and a presentation that was easy to follow. After a few changes, Lynne led us to various Denver area appliance and decorating stores to pick out what we liked best. The results were absolutely first class to meet our budget. When it was time to do the installing of the appliances, cabinets, laying the tile, or making any other move, Lynne coordinated the entire project for an on time completion. Brad is more than articulate in his art of wood working. He spent countless hours with the construction, finishing, and installation. If there was an issue, he came up with an answer to solve the problem. I would definitely recommend Lynne and Brad Martin to bid and design my next project. As a side note, I saw a photo of a newly remodeled office that looked like the perfect fit for me. Lynn designed it. Brad constructed and installed it. Perfect. One can’t go wrong with Lynne and Brad Martin. They are easy to work with and will lead you in the right direction.

Entertaining is a regular activity for this large family, so decorative, sliding glass, pocket doors were used to close off the kitchen during large parties and charity events.  The iron “swirl” design from the doors was carried into the center of the kitchen to the custom pot rack. Throughout this space, the spirit of Italy resides; right down to the Italian phrases that remind this family of their rich heritage.
