As we continue to celebrate our 20th anniversary year, our staffers share a few favorite kitchens from past issues.
“I like how welcoming and comfortable this kitchen is. It’s a classic design with plenty of room for family and friends. And…that pantry!? I’m in love.” (Designed by Brittany Nixon Brun) —Norma Edwards, Art Director
“From the floor-to-ceiling cabinetry that puts no space to waste to the unexpected touch of exposed brick, this Melissa Haynes-designed room gives me extreme kitchen envy. The large island is ideal for cooking and entertaining, and I especially love the pop of pattern on the barstools.” —Katie Cooper, Editor
“Blue is my favorite color, so it’s no surprise I adore this kitchen. I remember the designer, Tobi Fairley, noting that the color acts like a neutral here because the space is bathed in so many different shades.” —Tiffany Adams, Managing Editor
“This is not a space like any other kitchen. It has an old-country-store charm that’s apparent in every detail, and the designers did a great job bringing it all together. From the subway tile to the décor and that amazing custom light fixture, this is a kitchen I could see myself loving for years to come.” (Interior design by Park Hill Home; Built by Bret Franks Construction, Inc.) —Debbie Tissue, Marketing and Distribution Coordinator
