A burst of citrus a surefire way to add energy. Just ask designer Melissa Haynes (melissahaynesdesign.com), who redesigned this kitchen for a pair of doctors with a busy, on-call lifestyle. After living in the Fayetteville, Arkansas, house for about a year, the couple was ready to lighten and modernize their Country French kitchen, but they needed help. Melissa found a way to simplify and open the crowded yet well-built kitchen without doing a complete gut job.
What Melissa Did:
Incorporated family-friendly materials such as durable quartz countertops and Sunbrella fabrics
Freshened the palette
Cleaned up fussy cabinetry
Eliminated the hanging pot rack
Built a larger island with hidden storage
