This professional couple purchased a Victorian fixer upper and got to work, one project at a time.
After roof repairs and mechanical changes were completed, the homeowners brought in Camille Rossy to work on the interior. The good news: the beautiful woodwork was intact, and in good condition. The bad news: the original kitchen location and layout seemed an afterthought. We were lucky to start fresh in a new location with better circulation and 12-foot ceilings, but the beautiful woodwork in the guise of windows and doors was EVERYWHERE in this long, narrow room.
In reworking the space, we took advantage of a nook for the sink and dishwasher, leaving room all around to grow fresh herbs. We also made space for breakfast at an elongated island and created a work flow that allowed the husband to immerse himself in his passion for cooking. (Side note: although he’s pretty great with that Thermador stove, his restaurant might be called “You’ll eat what I bring you! Sorry no substitutions!”)
We were able to provide plenty of storage for everyday living and used a small adjoining pass-through for their extensive cookbook collection, kitchen overflow items, and a grown-up drop zone/charging station for easy grab-and-go on the way out.
Next up – the old kitchen becomes the mudroom with storage and possibly laundry. Stay Tuned!
