Tucked in a quiet historic district the home had lovely features that had been preserved throughout. The kitchen had been stripped down and had no real charm. The lines of it were broken up by many doors to enter and exit the space and too many windows running across the back wall. The original pantry had been preserved but ran so deep into the space that it became awkward to use. By carefully laying out the new space we were able to add a laundry, mudroom and powder bath behind the new kitchen and to create a new entry into the home in the back. This allowed for us to regain the much needed wall space in the kitchen and create an large beautiful cohesive space to cook and entertain. It was very important to keep the historic feel of the home. Using some of the cabinetry in the dining room and the original pantry for inspiration our team created a timeless kitchen with oak arched cabinets, brass detailing and marble counters that will remain timeless for years to come.
Timeless indeed! This kitchen is to die for. The oak really stands out against the white and those arched cabinets are such a statement detail. And that pantry!!!! Designed by Massachusetts based Jess Cooney. Photos: Lisa Vollmer
