AyA Kitchens and Baths had the pleasure of working with Karen Kirk, Home and Decor Editor for Canadian Living on a very special project that is close to Karen's heart, "The Room that Hope Built." Karen's niece, Rebecca Borg, passed away from acute myelogenous leukemia (AML) in 2002. Part of Rebecca's legacy was the vision of the transformation of the once very sterile, cold patient's lounge at Princess Margaret Hospital into a room that patients could hang out with friends and family - chatting, watching a movie or admiring the view of downtown Toronto.
AyA set out to create both soothing and stylish storage solutions for the entertainment center and kitchenette. AyA's Modena White cabinets combined with Vermont Cinnamon Oak coffee center creates a light, airy kitchen highlighted by the warmth of the oak. The oak is reflected on the opposite wall in the "family room", housing the entertainment center. Glass doors help give sparkle and sophistication, while once again minimizing those pesky "dust traps". Crown moulding, light valance, fluted posts and furniture toe kick all contribute to making this space a home away from home.
