From contemporary to traditional, these four kitchens incorporate a range of materials and design features that are swoon-worthy.

The homeowner wanted a sleek design for a mid-century modern renovation. Sandy Sartor, owner of Key Millwork and Supply, was instrumental in working with the client to create a sleek and functional space.  Rift sewn white oak cabinets  are found throughout the kitchen, along with integrated appliances that are seamlessly disguised in the design. Custom Design Center fabricated Carrera marble to create a slab backsplash, shelves and perimeter countertops, while white quartz was used on the island. Taylor Bennett sourced brushed bronze pulls from Key Millwork & Supply and incorporated the homeowner’s art to style the kitchen.


Owners Kate and Danny Graham created a sanctuary in their Ruston home by incorporating custom millwork and beautiful hardware.

The homeowners worked with Kiki Wardlaw to create a serene space that combined their love for old English charm with all the luxuries of a modern design. Key Millwork and Supply Co. fabricated cabinets with overlay doors which were painted Pigeon, a nostalgic blue gray hue from Farrow & Ball. Handcrafted brass pulls and knobs from deVOL punctuate the design.  A custom-designed vent hood was fabricated in Chicago and takes center-stage along with a stunning gourmet range by Wolf. Both extra durable and all-natural, Taj Mahal quartzite was used on both the island and perimeter countertops. Reminiscent of old vintage taps, the faucet adds a lovely appeal when combined with a traditional apron-front sink. Taylor Bennett was responsible for styling the kitchen with elements that incorpate the appeal of this design from across the pond. 


Homeowners Kristi and Eli Globke worked with Holly Gray to create a design that incorporated rustic elements in a modern, open concept design.

Custom millwork by Wilbur Rucker incorporates reclaimed wood, from Ouachita Antique Woods, inset into a painted frame. Custom crafted hardware by Marty King creates a balanced look. A gorgeous Bertazzoni range is a welcomed addition to this expertly designed kitchen perfectly suited for a family who likes to spend time cooking and entertaining.

A curated collection of dishes and vases are elegantly displayed in a niche crafted from reclaimed wood. Chad Sanders fabricated the dark-hued concrete countertops and backsplash, and Trey Reese installed a bold gray and white Moroccan tile backsplash from Clay Imports in Austin, TX.

Amy Simmermaker was tasked with creating a dramatic custom paint in a dark blue matte that would be cohesive with the rustic drawer facings and custom concrete countertops. 


Claire and Hardy Gordon worked with designer Tish Miller to create a space they could gather, get comfortable and entertain.

A quiet color palette is punctuated with moments of soft gray, Hardwick White by Farrow & Ball, which is seen on the perfectly crafted inset cabinetry by Key Millwork and Supply, Co.  Beautiful quartzite is used as a countersplash behind a Lacanche range which serves as a centerpiece in this sophisticated space.  Special thanks to Susan Duke at Function First and the contractor, Taylor Builders.
