Shortlisted: Kitchen Design Over £150,000 - Global Award

The International Design & Architecture Awards 2024

In the realm of interior design, Lori Carroll is renowned for her ability to transcend conventional wisdom and prove that, when executed with precision, uniformity can give birth to extraordinary design. The belief that employing a single material across multiple surfaces may result in a mundane living space is quickly dispelled when one observes the meticulous craftsmanship and astute vision in her work.

In a recent project, Lori Carroll was tasked with transforming a kitchen into a high-end haven of style and practicality. The central point of inspiration emerged from a striking slab of Cielo quartzite. With a keen eye for balance and detail, Lori orchestrated an ensemble of complementary finishes and clean-lined forms, turning nature’s artistry into the kitchen’s defining feature. This exceptional piece served as both countertop and backsplash, its leathered finish anchoring the room and instigating visual intrigue.

Walnut cabinetry, equipped with discreet integrated pulls, was chosen for both function and simplicity. An unexpected twist in the form of a custom metal hood cover added a distinctive accent to the minimalist design. Lori’s attention to detail extended to the integration of appliances, seamlessly woven into the cabinetry by the skilled hands of a millwork fabricator. The meticulous book-matched installation of calcatta quartzite flooring ensured the continuity of the veining, underscoring the commitment to excellence.

Throughout this project, no detail was too minor for Lori’s meticulous touch. Impeccably designed cabinetry, seamlessly integrated hardware, and a sleek metal-clad hood ensured a harmonious blend of aesthetics and practicality. The expertise of a custom cabinet maker and the discerning eye of stone fabricators were invaluable, ensuring that every facet of the space, from flooring to countertops and backsplash, was executed with precision and grace. Lori Carroll’s approach is a testament to the transformative power of unwavering attention to detail and an eye for extraordinary design.
