Slivers of light and
glimmering silvered
mirrors bring Old
Hollywood glamour to
this Bloomfield Hills

Lynne Konstantin I Design Writer

he owner of this Bloomfield Hills home loves
white. Clean and crisp, yet soft and romantic —
white done right can speak rainbows of style.
Jodi Caden gets that. But the designer and owner of
Birmingham's Caden Design Group also got that the busy
wife, mother of three and frequent entertainer needed a
home that worked as well as wowed. So when the home-
owner hired Bloomfield Hills builder Thomas Sebold &
Associates and Stanley Lecznar, senior designer at the
Teich Group in Royal Oak and Caden's longtime friend,
Lecznar quickly brought Caden on to help bring the
home to light.
"I can never tire of white:' says Caden. A lot of my
personal favorite homes are white. But I try to put a dif-
ferent spin on every white home I do. It doesn't have to
be plain or flat or always the same — just the opposite. It
can have its own personality:' ❑


Airy and organic, and a functional source of light, three

paneled arches in the kitchen set the stage for a theme of

grandeur in the details throughout the home. Caden wain-

scoted the cabinets and fit them into niches in the room,

adding more punctuated architectural interest while inte-

grating the look with ceiling-height crowned cabinets. The

X-crossed glass-paned cabinet doors were custom made

and lined with antiqued mirrors and hidden lights that line

the whole kitchen. "At night, the whole room lights up,

and it's breathtaking," says Caden. "The glow takes on the

color of whatever is in the cabinet, so if the homeowner

has a collection of green ceramics, the lights cast green."

A cook and entertainer, the homeowner loves the look

of marble, so Caden used the material for the back walls

and the 21/2-inch thick island top. She mixed it up with

11/2-inch-thick indestructible stainless steel on the back
