Lori Carroll & Associates, Tucson, AZ

The change of scenery was a drastic one for the homeowners

of this custom kitchen, created by Lori Carroll of Lori Carroll

& Associates in Tucson, AZ, with design assistance from

Soloway Interiors. A move from a Chicago high-rise to Arizona

meant a change in design styles, but not needs. The home-

owners still wanted the elements they were leaving behind; in

particular a spacious, contemporary chef’s kitchen ideal for

cooking and entertaining.

The desert landscape was the inspiration for the 912-sq.-ft.

kitchen. Neutral color tones, including Desert Suede paint and

honed Napolina limestone ooring, were chosen to create a

sense of warmth.

Custom cabinetry provides organized storage, including

tall pantry cabinets. Custom White Smoked Oak with hori-

zontal grain cabinetry from Stone River Studio is featured on

the perimeter and second island, while stainless steel cabinets

grace the rst island. Contempo Living’s Twisted cabinet pulls

add a contemporary splash.

Polished Night Gold Granite highlights the perimeter of

the room, with polished Savanna Brown Quartzite nishing

the island bar. A Zero Radius Undermount Single Bowl sink

from Houzer teams with Hansgrohe’s Talis S 1-Handle Prep

Faucet in this island.

Contrasting with the stainless cabinets of the rst island

is leathered Bronzo Quartzite, paired with Iroko Endgrain

butcher block from Spekva. Finishing it o is the Precis Super

Single Undermount stainless sink matched with a Master

Gourmet faucet, both from Blanco. Above it, Hudson Valley

Massena Pendants provide an industrial vibe.

To meet the cooking needs of this couple, the back wall

features a BlueStar 48" cooktop paired with a custom hood

nished in polished Bronzo Quartzite that incorporates

the 52" Pro Hood Liner from Vent-A-Hood. A stainless

steel backsplash adds to the space’s contemporary aesthet-

ic, contrasting with Caesar’s Change Series rectangular

ceramic tile in Bronze Stave. Turning the corner, a 36" All

Refrigerator and 36" All Freezer, both from Sub-Zero, stand

side by side.
