The sign of replica of a former art gallery on the outskirts of Paris France. the home it's attached to now the outskirts of Bend Oregon there is something about this house it's. different and I like that and but we have to make it ours it is different that much is certain you see there.
aren't many stone french countries. mansions in Central Oregon this one started out as someone else's dream. Brenda and Karl saw it on the real estate market they liked the style they liked the location they especially liked the sign actually made it a contingency of sale the kitchen well it was not as likable it was very small for the size of the home, it wasn't laid out in a way that two people could actually use at the same time .
we cussed and discussed and now we're here or there is a place they arrived at with the help of Neal Kelley design consultant Kathleen. Donohue Brenda and Karl both love to cook and so they got some serious appliances .
they have the big range the big range hood here the double oven. Dacor a double ovens and of course the sub-zero refrigerator the features that was real plus for them was having the pot filler .
but also having the chef sinks what we call it right here next to the cooktop notice the fleur-de-lis. detail friend is originally from Louisiana maybe it was the house.
speaking to her but the fleur-de-lis. accents were already here the Neal Kelley crew had to figure out how to reuse them in a new design this was actually in the backsplash of the old kitchen and our tile guy very pain stay lovingly cut it chiseled it out of the tile that it was in and we were able to remount that this little sitting area was here too .
but Brenda says it was underutilized didn't have enough light was an odd color basically the space for the kitchen was huge but the kitchen. itself the kitchen kind of ended there. the ovens did it and it was basically the same format and it was just the back wall in this and all the appliances .
were on this wall so one of the keys to making this kitchen work was turning this corner and getting a refrigerator. over here there was already a walk-in pantry so we made it just a little bit tinier but we also made it real cute .
she made the island real big featuring a deep single bowl sink and two workstations at either end the island. has huge storage potential kind of duteous when you start out because you don't know what the final project is going to end you know Kathleen has scores of sheets that she's worked on you know we had like I think three major.
designs before we picked on this one now. it's gorgeous I mean it works I have the other kitchen had no space at all this has tons of space I still don't have everything up front the top but you know.
we'll get there Brenda also has the coveted Neal Kelley before-and-after. book how many of your friends have you show this book to where everybody yeah.
if we go to a party it goes with us. that's right yeah these are this is our grandkids and then they come later on and actually look at the kitchen and Bend is a long way from Paris and a fair stretch from Louisiana. but thanks to a new kitchen it's a fantastic space to bring home a little fantastic space to bring home a little southern hospitality to Central Oregon.
