Let’s explore how Casa Carolina Estate showcases innovative, sustainable, and custom kitchen design, making it the epitome of luxury living.
The Enchanting Story:
Carrie Torres, enamored with Western North Carolina since her childhood visits, had always dreamed of relocating. Unable to do so, she settled for extended visits and fell in love with an 1864 Victorian mansion at the base of Davis Mountain. Through meticulous restoration and a vision for a rental property, the mansion was transformed into Casa Carolina Estate.
The Perfect Balance:
Casa Carolina Estate seamlessly blends the old and the new, preserving the Victorian architecture while incorporating contemporary elements. This delicate balance is a testament to the skill of the interior designer, Matthew Watkins, and his collaboration with the homeowners.
The kitchen, a focal point of Casa Carolina Estate, underwent a remarkable transformation. By retaining historical features such as the original hardwood flooring and ornate moldings, the design honors the mansion’s past while embracing modernity. The introduction of sleek Shaker-style cabinets, brushed brass hardware, and a refined-rustic color palette adds a touch of contemporary elegance.
In line with the growing demand for eco-friendly design, Casa Carolina Estate showcases sustainable elements. From energy-efficient appliances to thoughtful material choices, this luxury kitchen design promotes sustainability without compromising on style or sophistication.
