Alex and Judy Cielo live in Miami. Together with their children Will (8) and Amanda (5), they live an active, fast-paced life. During the week, simple meals are prepared by one of the adults or brought in from a local restaurant, while over the weekend, the entire family makes cooking a group sport. When extended family and friends are in town, everyone pitches in and makes cooking a part of the party.
The kitchen in the contemporary home the Cielos fell in love with needed an upgrade. They insist on an aesthetically superior kitchen, but also want a kitchen that can accommodate their hectic weekday schedule. Often, meals need to be prepared quickly, and dinnertime is not always at the same time for everyone.
The Cielo’s new kitchen requires plenty of workspace. Bosch appliances include a speed microwave oven and other features that aid fast, consistent cooking results, and their truly flush design adds a high level of sophistication. The design solution includes a contemporary mix of elegant walnut cabinets and Arizona tile split face tavertine. It’s an uncluttered juxtaposition of old-world and high-tech materials.
