My Friend Jen’s Kitchen

Today, I’m really excited to share my good friend Jen’s beautiful kitchen!

Not only is this stunning, modern, rustic space in this month’s issue of Better Homes and Garden’s Kitchen + Bath Ideas, but it’s the cover story!  It’s weird to think I’ve known Jennifer and her family for over a decade now,
it seems like just last year that we both moved into our houses around the corner from each other, with our small (and then only) babies.

Jen’s a fabulous cook and host with great style, she enlisted the help of professional kitchen designer, Rebecca Reynolds of New Canaan kitchens. 

Knowing this lovely family as I do, I can honestly say that I see their style and taste shining through in this fresh, new design.

I’m basically obsessed with the wood ceiling, the upholstered banquet, that super cool butler’s pantry, and don’t even get me started on that metal riveted stove hood.

These are just a few of my favorite shots (photographed by Michael Partenio) it’s worth checking out the magazine for the full story.

Congrats again on your gorgeous kitchen Jen!

  2. Beautiful, If I am not mistaken she shared some images with me before she was finished decorating quite a while back? It looks stunning and family friendly at the same time.

  3. I love the pot filler, it's a something that a lot of people don't really think about anymore.

    Looking at a bazillion design blogs and photos of remodeled kitchens leaves me to believe that originality in design has gone on hiatus. Many of the kitchens look absolutely the same. The same farm sink, the same huge stove, multiple ovens and dishwashers, granite countertops, large islands. They all look the same, just different colors schemes. Basically boring. Yawn…..
