This Angela Goodall–designed kitchen in a new Long Lake Peninsula home feels as deliciously comforting as a hot cross bun. Cream cabinetry in two tones, inset doors and deep crown molding combine for traditional tastefulness, while a built-in cherry hutch and a cherry island-base spice the soft golds and toasted tones (think fresh from the oven baked goods!) of porcelain floor tile and typhoon Bordeaux granite.
Homeowner Judy McEvoy displays her collectables in the hutch as well as on a custom mantel set into the range hood. A backsplash that combines subway tiles and reflective bits of tin enhances the feel that the hood/mantel is the hearth of the kitchen.
While the island (embellished with traditional, elegant table legs) invites seating, the kitchen is made for cooking—a fact borne out in the white-enamel apron sink with its gooseneck faucet and the pot filler that hovers over the range. Judy and her husband, Steve Zavodny, love baking as well as cooking, so Goodall opened up the pantry entrance to make room for a baking nook complete with a second oven. The area is such a pleasant place for a baker/sous chef, it helps keep both wife and husband in the kitchen—happily!
