International Supermodel Coco Rocha Selects Silestone® for New Kitchen
June 21, 2017
Supermodel, Coco Rocha recently unveiled her newly renovated kitchen at her home in Westchester, New York, just an hour north of Manhattan. Awash in white with bright pops of colour, Coco and her husband James designed and managed the entire project to create a space that was both contemporary and family friendly.
When asked about the intense renovation and redecoration process, Rocha explains how much she loves the large open plan kitchen, living and dining space and emphasises the crucial role of materials in this transformation; “We kept the design simple yet contemporary… materials were really crucial in bringing the whole look together.”
After a total renovation of the 1980s home, the kitchen, living and dining space now open up into one giant 50-foot long room with a wall of windows that bathe the space in natural light.
When it came to selecting new countertops, Coco and James selected Silestone® in Blanco Norte: ultra-sleek, ultra-durable and easy to maintain. Silestone® surfaces are highly stain, impact and scratch resistant as well as having a low liquid absorption rate. For Rocha, this means she didn’t have to compromise style for functionality.
The island serves as a hardworking prep zone and social area, and also helps separate the kitchen space from the adjacent living room.
Coco and James mixed an array of finishes throughout the space. In the dining room, a copper theme adds touches of warmth and interest throughout, whilst the kitchen is accented with a polished chrome faucet and stainless-steel appliances.
With a huge passion for both colour and Pop Art, Coco selected fun, statement-making pieces to bring personality into the space. To create a strong design cohesion between the kitchen and living room, the couple used Silestone® Blanco Norte – the same used for their kitchen countertops – as the material for the fireplace surround.
Due to the open plan space, James and Coco selected materials that would create cohesion. The juxtaposition of the warm walnut cabinetry against the sleek Silestone® countertops is modern and ultra-sleek.
