Top-notch kitchens & baths

(page 3 of 6)

Owen and Melanie Goudelocke

Lafayette

How would you describe your kitchen in terms of style?
Melanie: The best way would be a French kitchen with Louisiana flavor. I have remained true to this look even in former homes, including the use of the same Brunswick wallpaper in all of my kitchens.

Did you use an interior designer to achieve what you wanted?
Melanie: Yes, I chose Rita Durio of Rita Durio & Associates in Lafayette because I felt like she would be the best one as far as interpreting what I wanted.

What is your favorite feature?
Melanie: Having a DCS high-powered commercial range with six burners has made cooking for guests a real pleasure.

What other features are special to you?
Melanie: The old cypress cabinets really bring a warmth to this room as well as the brick floors laid in a basket weave pattern. They both offer a wonderful surface that allows my collection of flow blue china plates and antique teapots to stand out.

Do you eat most meals in the kitchen?
Melanie: [The island] makes a great buffet area for serving guests, [but] I prefer not to eat in the vicinity where I have prepared meals. We have an adjacent keeping room that offers an extended space for easy socializing between both rooms.
