My client loved the idea of using a British Colonial theme to blend her love of the Traditional with a Tropical feel. The one caveat was we had to keep it light. The solution was maple cabinetry with a light stain and glaze to accent the details. The “X” detail is frequently seen in Bermuda architecture on balcony railings. The rattan inserts in some of the doors are also a tropical material. The most important tip here is that “less is more” so we didn’t do this on every cabinet, too much and it fails to stand out as a focal point.
