The “cooking wall,” as Geran calls it, was of utmost importance to the couple, one of whom is a restaurant owner. It includes 7 feet of custom-designed ranges, a 10.5-foot cobalt-blue hood, and a professional salamander broiler.

As with any kitchen renovation, this project came with its challenges. The 11-foot hood, for instance, was so long that it didn’t fit in the spray booth at the factory; instead, the royal-blue hue was applied in a rented auto-body shop.

The original kitchen was done in the French-country style, much like the rest of the home. Part of Geran’s challenge was to design a more-modern kitchen that still respected the original aesthetic.

“I have a lot of clients who tell me their favorite color is blue or red or green, but this is the first client I’ve had [who was] willing to commit to it in such a dramatic way.” —Jodi Geran, Dalia kitchen design
