In coastal communities like Pensacola (Florida) where Silestone trendspotter Cheryl Kees Clendenon calls home, indoor and outdoor design often go hand-in-hand. In collaboration with Cosentino, Kohler and Benjamin Moore, Cheryl’s coastal aesthetic came to life with her Greenhouse Kitchen: a tranquil environment that embraces the outdoors and encourages relaxation.
Here, functionality takes center stage with easy access to home gardening, a prep zone for canning fruit and vegetables, wide aisles for aging in place, and wine storage awash in brilliant light. With different kitchen zones in mind, Cheryl used four colors from Cosentino to help define space and ensure maximum durability: Charcoal Soapstone and Calacatta Gold from the Silestone Eternal Collection, Silestone Iconic White, and Dekton Aldem.
