A period of living abroad in France inspired the design of a kitchen in a Webster Groves family’s century home. Wendy Kuhn, a designer for Karr Bick Kitchen + Bath, detailed how the French Provincial-style kitchen came together, with the help of Tri-Square Construction. 

UNIQUE VISION. An Old-World light fixture made of wine barrels from Pottery Barn served as the jumping-off point for this French Provincial kitchen.

FAMILY AFFAIR. Durable, yet attractive, the Stone Fabricators’ white granite countertops and backsplash, a distressed Craft Art black walnut wooden island top and distressed Mouser custom cabinetry painted in French putty and sage green were selected to suit this busy family of seven who also loves to entertain guests.

WIDE OPEN SPACES. To keep the kitchen open and airy, a wall of custom windows overlooking the lush backyard, hideaway Sub Zero, Wolf and Asko appliances, and a warm graphite paint hue were added.
