Final installment in our binge-worthy kitchen series reviews the strong style sense from The Morning Show and Maid.
Part #3: Showcasing Success with Stone Surfaces
It’s always a pleasure to witness successful female characters in today’s most-watched TV series. Whether the host of a famed talk show or a prosperous lawyer, The Morning Show and Maid showcase strong, stylish women at the top of their game. As we witness their journeys, we shake our heads at some of these characters’ behavioral choices, but we always cheer for the fabulous interior stone designs featured in their homes.
The Morning Show
Jennifer Aniston is reported to have had a direct hand in designing her character Alex Levy’s to-die-for apartment. This swanky Manhattan penthouse on Apple TV’s The Morning Show embodies the pinnacle of success, representing a woman who calls the shots in her career and in her home. The wraparound, almost-lavender veined slab for the kitchen countertops are decadent icing on her dark, brown cabinets. The thick, stone island is certainly sturdy enough to withstand Alex’s heavy vodka pours.
But the real stone stand-out?
This tiered-marble serving station provides an impressive display, even without the finger foods. Whether it’s to serve up Alex’s daily news report, or all the Thanksgiving pies, this look is fantastically functional.
In Netflix’s Maid, a down-on-her-luck cleaning woman goes toe-to-toe with Regina, an intimidating attorney. But the real knockout comes from Regina’s kitchen—a dreamy isle of gray and ivory-veined dolomite, cascading top-to-floor in her cavernous, waterfront home.
And can we talk about the matching accent wall?
Wow! This floor-to-ceiling piece ties the great room to the marble in the kitchen. Bouncing the light from water-facing windows, it reflects the many shades of Regina’s personality. This is a house of a classy, educated woman. It’s no wonder the main character, Alex, wants to pretend it’s her own.
