IN THE PAST YEAR, THE KITCHEN has taken on a bigger role than we ever could have imagined. In many homes, the kitchen—or neighboring breakfast table—has morphed into a de facto home office, complete with laptops, charging cords, and piles of paperwork. So it’s no surprise that the desire to banish clutter and streamline our most lived-in space has bubbled to the top of our collective wish list. After all, the kitchen is no longer just the heart of the home. It’s the engine that keeps it running. Designer Sarah Robertson understands this well. When tasked with reviving a tired family kitchen in Connecticut, she prioritized storage from the get-go, mapping out custom solutions that put everything in its place (“Orderly Conduct,” page 50). She tucked charging stations in drawers, slipped…

gardener’s retreat

“I LIKE TO MIX METALS BECAUSE IT ADDS MORE TEXTURE TO A ROOM. I ALSO LOVE HOW THE BLACK POPS AGAINST THE LIGHT QUARTZ COUNTERTOPS. —AMY LEFERINK, DESIGNER” FRAMED BY A PAIR OF FIG TREES, a medley of pink dahlias and limelight hydrangeas bloom just outside Jinny Berkopec’s bathroom windows. But it’s a view the master gardener had rarely enjoyed. Thanks to a chunky built-in tub surround, accessing the window shades required the agility of an acrobat. “It made getting to the window treatments really tricky, so I just left them down all the time,” Jinny says. “For four years, I didn’t see that garden.” Finding a main-floor primary bathroom in a house near St. Paul was the impetus for Jinny and her husband, Mike, to buy it. The empty nesters knew…

EVEN THE MOST BEAUTIFUL KITCHENS need a little nip and tuck every now and then. When kitchen designer Sarah Robertson first visited her new clients’ 20-year-old kitchen, she knew that its good bones didn’t quite make up for its lack of efficiency. Storage space was limited and the original cabinets and country French color palette felt outdated. After donating the old cabinetry, appliances, and countertops to Renovation Angel to find a new home, Robertson set to work planning a kitchen space that focused on storage solutions and a modern design that felt more appropriate for a family who cherishes their time in the kitchen. “It was a matter of balancing of-the-moment design with what feels timeless,” Robertson says. “We went with classic cabinetry but kept the millwork just simple enough to feel…

colorful attitude

“WHEN YOU SAY ‘GREEN KITCHEN,’ most people look at you funny,” Maria DeLuca says. “They picture 1970s avocado, and it’s a little frightening. No one wants those flashbacks.” Maria’s brother—architect and builder Rosario Mannino—however, doesn’t scare easily. “When she said ‘green,’ I thought, This is awesome,” Mannino says. “Nothing plain-Jane for Maria!” The two teamed up to envision a colorful, high-function kitchen for the New Jersey home that Maria shares with husband Mike and their three children. They worked in the footprint of the former dining room—a space left available after the family added on to the 100-year-old home. For cabinets in the new cooking space and former kitchen, now home to a wet bar and gathering area, brother and sister agreed on an earthy, muted artichoke hue plucked from the home’s…
