An exceptional home requires an exceptional kitchen. That was the thought Bobby Herr, of Barbra Herr Kitchens, had when she was commissioned to design a kitchen for a 1930’s estate home. With incredible architectural detail and stunning woodwork throughout the house, the design challenge was to capture the essence of the house while creating a kitchen that was functional, proportionally correct and looking like it had always been there. The style solution was immediate, says Bobby. “The house was screaming for Stanford!”
With perimeter cabinets slated for Stanford, Bobby turned her attention to the island. Bobby incorporated carved corner supports and detailed panels into the design of the dark stained, Mahogany island. Used for both seating and storage, the island is comprised of storage drawers, a microwave, and accommodates a number of dinner guests.
A freestanding Walnut armoire solved the problem of where to put a full-size refrigerator and freezer. With room to recess the appliances into the wall, Bobby created a furniture piece dressed in French details and perfect for concealing them. Pullout pantries are seamlessly incorporated to the left and right.
