Design a Kitchen for Entertaining
Seven: The butler's pantry features a wine bar with built-in bottle storage, glass racks and a raised wine chiller. At left, Katie Doerr pours a glass of Chardonnay.
The pantry also stores small appliances out of sight, keeping the main kitchen neat. (Dirty dishes at dinner parties often hide here, too.) High cabinets display collectibles behind decorative divided-light glass doors.
Design details throughout the kitchen suit the home's 1920s cottage style. Warm black-walnut floors and teak countertops recall classic sailing yachts and contrast with the white-painted beaded-board cabinetry. Vintage-look latches and crescent-shape pulls add to the kitchen's charm.
