“Wes Anderson meets Provençal.” Designer Chris Graves (of Clarence & Graves) is describing his imaginative and prescient for his kitchen renovation. However what does that imply, precisely? For one factor, a memorable palette, on this case “a good looking tender palette of pink, black and inexperienced”; for an additional, nostalgia for the previous by way of quirky classic and vintage items. After which, there’s the extra intangible component, a sure joie de vivre that each one Wes Anderson units appear to share: “I needed it to really feel joyous, convivial, brilliant, like we have been overseas,” says Chris, who labored with deVOL’s in-house design workforce on the challenge.
All of which was achieved with this charm-filled transform. The as soon as darkish ’70s kitchen (assume pine cabinets and purple plastic counters) is now a whimsical, welcoming, and meticulously thought of house for his self-described “messy, colliding household.”
Let’s take a tour. (And don’t be shocked if you wish to cue up The Royal Tanenbaums or Grand Budapest Resort afterward.)
