Atlanta Junior League’s Tour of Kitchens
These homeowners with three children spend most of their time in the kitchen and keeping room area, so it was important to them to have those areas together and open. They also enjoy cooking, entertaining, and gardening, so all of these factors were considered in designing their kitchen. With 12' ceilings, the cabinets were taken up to 10' height, the unique hood wall was made to showcase the owners' collection of antique china while also providing more cabinet storage for spices and bake items. Light floods the kitchen from a huge elliptical mahogany casement window above the double bowl apron front sink. The window opens to the owners' English herb garden and water feature. There are two large islands, one works as a prep island and the other as a homework/serving island—with its two warming drawers and bar seats. There is a large commercial range on one side of the kitchen with a pot filler and a single convection oven and microwave on the other side of the kitchen. This arrangement provides for plenty of working space and tasks to be accomplished at one time. The Sub-Zero refrigerator and separate freezer are centered in the kitchen and anchor the wall between the Butler's pantry and the food pantry with its large elliptical radius seedy glass doors above. There is an antique ox yoke chandelier in the center of the kitchen providing interest and further expressing the owners' love of antiques and a hutch in the food pantry where the cherry top enhances the Lancaster green base and wall cabinet.
The faux finish on the walls and Lancaster green with antique glazing on the trim warmly tie the rich cherry cabinets together with the Lancaster green island and granite tops in the keeping and breakfast rooms. Reclaimed antique beams and pillars from a North Carolina barn add warmth and charm.
