Old World Style

Second Place: Medium Kitchen

Old World Style

A small, dark and outdated kitchen made way for this cleverly planned, light-filled redo in Potomac. Though the footprint stayed the same, the new design allows for added workspace and storage.

Says kitchen designer Shannon Kadwell, “The inspiration for this project came from the clients’ love of the European farm kitchen.” A classic Lacanche range from France, as well as honed marble countertops, recall visits to the French countryside.

Tall glass storage cupboards and a butler’s pantry lined with open shelves store necessities within easy reach. Shallow drawers in the seating area under the island stow away linens.

“The island also creates a comfortable resting spot for light meals,” says Kadwell, “and an efficiently functional space for prep and clean-up.”
