Design in Depth: Killer Kitchens

October 2, 2013

Last week while we were shooting houses on Nantucket for New England Home, it occurred to me what amazing kitchens we feature in the magazine. Kitchens don’t always get the play that a beautiful living or dining room get, so I thought I would share a few of my favorite ones here. Happy Pinning!

Interior designer Molly Frey really knows kitchens. It was on a kitchen shoot for Traditional Home in Florida that I first met the talented North Shore-based designer. Eric Roth and I photographed this Marblehead kitchen of hers for New England Home the following year.

Greenwich-based designer Cindy Rinfret has easily designed hundreds of kitchens. This one, so memorable for its gray and white checkered backsplash tile and stainless steel island is one of my favorites we’ve featured in the magazine.

Stepping through the door of New Hampshire artist Daniel Thibeault’s apartment was like walking through a portal into Provence. Limed cabinets, plaster walls and collected antiques gave the room such character insuring no one would have a kitchen like his.

To be considered a kitchen it doesn’t necessarily have to be indoors. Restaurateur Stephanie Sokolove teamed with architect John MacDonald to design the ultimate outdoor kitchen complete with pizza oven, refrigerators and a grill.

In a recent feature in New England Home Connecticut, Boston-based designer Eric Roseff showed us how a kitchen can be done right even in a small guest house. No elegance was spared here.

There’s certainly nothing wrong with grandiose, particularly when it’s done so well with black cabinets, white marble, and fantastic lighting as designer Anthony Como  shows us in this Avon, Connecticut, house.
