One of Heydt’s main objectives was to create a more open feeling in the kitchen without the heavy cabinets that had previously surrounded the window. The new open shelves help keep the kitchen feeling lighter and not so closed-in. Heydt took the opportunity to extend the countertops’ Calacatta d’Oro marble upward with 3-by-12-inch tiles. “It was a great opportunity to add more texture,” she says. Wanting to avoid the typical three pendant lights over the island, Heydt opted for a smashing globe chandelier. It creates a focal point and can be enjoyed from the entire open space. Paint by Benjamin Moore: Gray Owl (cabinets) and Whale Gray (island); Mr. Brown Galaxy Chandelier: Chairish; Pro 48 refrigerator-freezer with glass door: Sub-Zero; backsplash tile: Calacatta d’Oro, custom 3-by-12-inch size; cabinet hardware: Lugarno, Restoration Hardware Here you can see the placement of the pantry to the right of the range, which is not seen in the photographs. “We moved the microwave into the pantry because the family doesn’t use it much and we wanted to keep it out of sight,” Heydt says. “I seem to be doing a lot of this lately — there seems to be a move away from built-in microwaves.” The wine refrigerator is also in the pantry. We also don’t see the efficient cabinetry features in the photos. The island contains customized drawers for cutlery and 3-inch pullouts made specifically for napkins and placemats, among other things. “These pullouts are great for stacking things rather than having to stack stuff in piles,” she says.
