Kitchen Retrospective

The mark of great design is whether it stands the test of time. Here, we revisit our favorite kitchens from the past six years of Westchester Home. We think they’ve gotten even better with age.

Designer: Bilotta Kitchens
Maria Bilotta (yes, of Bilotta Kitchen fame) Distefano's 400-square-foot kitchen boasts a large hearth area with a stainless-steel dual-fuel Wolf range surrounded by crackled rectangular tiles, sconces, and an antique glass mirror. The 48-inch, side-by-side Sub-Zero is paneled in the same cherry as the cabinets; the wide, multipurpose island was designed for both food prep and light dining. The dining table’s copper top along with the copper trim edging the pizza oven (far right) was custom-made; honed limestone floors have decorative metal inserts that match the copper table top.

At the risk of sounding immodest, we think Westchester Magazine’s Dream Home kitchen is, well, pretty dreamy. The centerpiece is a massive antique white oak center island salvaged from a 19th-century grain mill and accented with hammered metal corners, inspired by a Louis Vuitton trunk. The floors and ceiling beams are reclaimed wood; Rutt cabinets, finishes, and varnishes are also eco-friendly.

Designer: Karen Williams, St. Charles of New York
This 16-by-22-foot kitchen is defined by curves: the arc of the islands, the camelback slabs of Calacatta Gold marble behind the sink. To enliven the classic white St. Charles cabinets, the ranges, professional-style refrigerator/freezer, and double wall oven and warming drawer are clad in the stainless steel, complemented by a custom-designed range hood of brushed nickel trimmed with polished nickel bands.
