A Ponte Verde, Florida Kitchen Gets a Costal Makeover with the Help of Top Knobs

A true interior visionary, Donna Mancini, of Donna Mancini Interiors & Flooring, works meticulously to provide her clients with exceptional design solutions. From consultation to project execution, Mancini has a well-developed understanding and appreciation for beautiful and functional spaces, and the emotions they evoke.

“My background is quite varied with over 30 years of experience in real estate, business, retail sales management, and interior design. Everything I’ve learned over the years has enabled me to bring a unique perspective and skill set to our current business.”

In her latest project, Donna Mancini deployed her talents to update a dysfunctional kitchen for a Ponte Verde, Florida couple who have a strong love of entertaining and cooking for family and friends.

Mancini began the renovation by eliminating two prep islands that did not offer much usable surface space and prevented the kitchen from its full functional potential. After removing both islands, Mancini created one large island that provided more seating, ample surface space and additional storage for her client’s small appliances.

Along the perimeter of the kitchen, Mancini removed the microwave above the stove and opted for a new range hood. The microwave was moved into a much more accessible and convenient location in the lower cabinets. This small change allowed for the addition of upper-stacked cabinetry where the homeowners could showcase their collection of home décor items.

With a new floor plan in place, Donna Mancini began her work refreshing the aesthetic of the kitchen to tie in with the costal décor of the rest of her client’s home. She relied upon her expertise and knowledge of current design trends and new products to lighten up the kitchen’s color palette and brought in texture and warmth with Top Knobs Ascendra pulls in Honey Bronze.

“I’m loving the warm golds, bronzes, and champagnes that are back in a big way,” says Mancini. “We loved the style of the Ascendra pulls for this kitchen! The lines are soft but clean, and the base provided just enough substance while remaining classic and refined. The look we wanted to achieve was coastal-inspired transitional and we thought this choice was perfect.”

Paired with Gray Mist colored cabinets, the Honey Bronze finish added the perfect amount of sophistication for a design Mancini’s clients are now proud to show off to family and friends.

From Dark and Awkward to Bright and Functional: A Louisiana Kitchen Gets a Total Makeover

The power of thoughtful space planning is essential, especially when renovating an older home. Designer and Blogger, Arianne Bellizaire from Arianne Bellizaire Interiors, stripped-down an entire twenty-five-year-old kitchen in Baton Rouge, Louisiana to create a uniquely designed space from scratch. The once dark and dated kitchen became a bright, stylish and functional space through enhancements of products and planning.

Before

After

With an end goal of presenting a practical beautiful space for her clients, Arianne Bellizaire bases all of her design decisions on finding the right balance between functionality and creating a visually appealing space that makes guests want to take a second look. She creates homes specifically so homeowners can alter their style.

Sometimes with particular designs such as rustic or minimalism, homeowners can tend to feel stuck with one style.

“I never want you to be able to pinpoint one defined style of any of my spaces. Rather I want them to be a healthy mix of complementary styles that help to tell the homeowner’s story,” Says Bellizaire.

Before

After

Although the masterpiece came out as a stylish, functional space, Bellizaire faced some crossroads during the renovation. The extensive construction led to the removal of an 18x cypress beam that provided structural support to the home. She also removed the upper cabinets making the space feel larger. Bellizaire had to ensure the new design incorporated enough storage and included a walk-in pantry to the plan.

With the installation of all-new cabinetry, Bellizaire was on a mission to find the perfect hardware to compliment her design, leading her to Top Knobs.

“Top Knobs is our go-to hardware resource. We love how much variety there is in the product line and how much depth there is within each collection. The Kinney and Hollin combination was the perfect, sleek complement to this kitchen renovation” Bellizaire commented.

The transition between the before and after of the kitchen was so impactful because of the versatility of the new space. From dark and awkward, to bright and functional, the homeowners have new space can that can easily evolve with their changing styles.
