The before: “There was an original butler’s kitchen and the main kitchen was next to it,” Regan says. “The cabinetry was outdated and hadn’t been touched in maybe 20 years, and was in need of repair.” To modernize it and provide views to the central family zone, she kept the existing window spaces, went with a skinny island to fit the narrow space, and mimicked the entryway curvature in the architectural details.
The inspiration: BlueStar was a sponsor for the showcase and Baker chose their amazing soft moss-gray range. “I’d never seen an appliance with a matte finish and we wanted the palette to have a modern Mediterranean feel,” she says. She planned to do a colorful kitchen but gravitated toward classic, timeless elements. The flooring uses a sculptural walnut shelving system between the kitchen and breakfast nook.

Most Insane Splurge: There are multiple splurges in this kitchen makeover, one of which is the Dmitriy & Co. sofa. “We wanted a bouclé, and this form and shape felt so inviting,” Regan comments. “It carries the curvature and concept of Mediterranean but in a modern way.” Another costly detail was carrying the paneling throughout the room.
Sneakiest Save: You wouldn’t know it, but the pantry system utilizes bins from CB2.
The Best Part: In a kitchen this beautiful, it’s tough to choose, but Regan loves the stove area with the motorized spice rack, textured handmade Linda Fahey tile, and moss-gray range. “The screen is insane as well,” she adds.
Something You’d Never Do Again: “I would’ve replaced the existing window carriers with new brass ones for that extra detail,” she says.
Final Bill: Kitchen: $200,000, which includes construction costs. Pantry: $30,000 without accessories.
