For a Marina del Rey, California, kitchen, the pièce de résistance happens to be an appliance: a beautiful, blue range and coordinating vent hood by L’Atelier Paris Haute Design. The homeowner worked with the company, who specializes in bespoke ranges, cabinetry and fixtures, on the bold selection.
“We landed on a custom 95-inch range with a 63-inch vent hood in Brilliant Blue that includes drawers for utensils and spice storage,” explains co-founder and creative director Maria Moraes. In addition to four gas burners, the range features a coup de feu for simmering and slow-cooking, a lava-stone barbecue and two ovens—not to mention stainless-steel countertops extending beyond the appliance for added prep space.
According to Moraes, the finish color required much deliberation, and several different tones of blue were considered while the rest of the palette, including a brick backsplash and oak cabinetry and flooring, were kept neutral to let the range shine. Recently, the brand’s options became even more diverse: Their spectrum of colors has expanded to include five more shades (including Gossamer Pink, below), all of which is inspired by Parisian style. leatelierparis.com
