The historic charm of a reclaimed antique marble island and cabinets add an elegant patina to this Nashville kitchen. “The first time we saw our kitchen, we were blown away by the space’s design and custom work!” says homeowner Kelly Herron. The interior designer designed a workable and user-friendly kitchen that flows seamlessly with the rest of the home by using a U-shaped layout centered around a large island. To expand the room visually, all appliances and storage areas are hidden behind handsome cream cabinetry. Determined to use every inch, he placed a recessed china cabinet in a wall underneath the staircase.
