International Supermodel Coco Rocha chooses Silestone®

Cosentino as Manufacturers

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 color, Coco and her husband James Conran designed and managed the entire project to create a space that was both contemporary and family friendly.

Rocha explains how much she loves the large open plan kitchen, living and dining space and emphasizes 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 gut-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 wash the space in natural light.

A kitchen that is beautiful and functional When it came to selecting new countertops, Coco and James selected Silestone® in White North: 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 doesn’t have to compromise style for functionality.

The island serves as a hardworking prep zone and gathering spot, and also helps separate the kitchen space from the adjacent living room.

Combination of finishes Coco and James mixed an array of finishes throughout the space. In the dining room, a copper theme: Her favorite is the AllModern copper chandelier that “looks like some Cold War-era satellite”, Coco says. The kitchen is accented with a polished chrome faucet and stainless-steel appliances.

With a huge passion for both color 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® White North – the same used for their kitchen countertops – as the material for the fireplace surround.

A modern and elegant result Due to the open nature of the floor plan, James and Coco selected materials that would create cohesion throughout the dining room, kitchen, and living space. The juxtaposition of the warm walnut cabinetry against the sleek Silestone® countertops is modern and ultra sleek.

Supermodel Coco Rocha first burst onto the fashion scene by Irish step dancing down the runway at a Jean Paul Gaultier show. But since her days of—as she puts it—“frilly blouses,” the Zac Posen muse has taken a decidedly modern turn. Nothing evidences this as much as Rocha’s recently remodeled Westchester, New York, home. With its sleek lines and pops of orange, it’s a far cry from the romance of the Irish countryside. Below, the model sounds off on her young family, renovation woes, and her evolving aesthetic.
