home of distinction 73 Watersports of all types and boats of all shapes and sizes provide a constant backdrop from this kitchen overlooking Banks Channel in Wrightsville Beach. Designed for entertaining, the kitchen’s large island seats many while fram-ing the view for guests to enjoy. With the range hood as the focal point — accentuating the high pitch of the vaulted ceiling — the island’s bowed front was created to mimic the architectural detail above the hood. The kitchen design was a collaboration between homeowners Anderson Taylor and Robin Jones, interior designer Pam Macior, and Holly Hanna at Hollingsworth Cabinets. “My vision was to fill the vaulted ceiling with a spectacular hooded piece that would be a focal point for the whole room,” Anderson says. The white cabinets have a leading presence in the room as well, while the hardware and custom wrought iron brackets complement the scale of the room. Macior commissioned a NASCAR artist to fabricate the brackets that secure the hood and countertop. “Because he makes car parts, he was the only one that had the equipment to bend metal that thick. The circles are actual tubing that he had to cut,” Macior says. The homeowners chose stainless steel appliances that aesthetically enhance the space, and also accommodate their frequent hosting. Made for islands, the Sharp microwave drawer oven is camouflaged on the inside of the island with its low profile design and sleek appearance. A Thermador 48-inch dual fuel range offers several cooking options while the Sapphire Glow dishwasher is made for washing cooking appliances and crystal wine glasses.
