Sponsored by Classic Cupboards
Burt and Me’me’ Wilson began remodeling their kitchen in January 2009; the chic room was finished by May with the help of contractor Bubba Pharis of G.S. Pharis Inc. Interior decorating was done by Lisa Pharis Design LLC.
The 600-square-foot kitchen contains flat-door cabinets from Classic Cupboards installed by G.S. Pharis Inc. The cabinets are painted Maple with a Chocolate glaze and have alternating inserts of glass and antique wire mesh. They blend well with the island, painted Maple with a Glacier glaze. Hidden spice racks are located on both sides of the stove, and the island holds two hidden chopping boards. Intrepid Stone provided and installed the silver travertine countertops, while Classic Cupboards supplied the dark teak island countertop. The classic ivory travertine flooring and the horizontal stone backsplash tile by Rockart Mosaics are from Perque. Copper gas lanterns with German glass by Legendary Lighting give the kitchen a bit of an antique feel.

Dr. Troy Scroggins Jr. and Patrick Miller began their Garden District home renovation in August 2009, and by May 2010, their divine kitchen was complete.

The Brookhaven cabinets by Wood-Mode from Cabinets by Design are painted Opaque with a Charcoal glaze. Randy Duvenae of Signature Stone Services made and installed the Calacatta Gold marble countertops from The Stone Gallery. The hardwood floors are original to the home and were stained and refinished by Elite Hardwood Floors Inc. The tile is from Stafford Tile & Stone, installed by G & A Tile Inc. All appliances are from Ferguson Enterprises Inc., many of them manufactured by Wolf. The brick double-oven base unit matches the table and hardwood, warming up the entire kitchen.

Wendell and Katie LeGardeur underwent a total home renovation in 2007, during which half of the first floor was completely gutted and second and third floors were added. The whole project took 10 months, resulting in a charming 468-square-foot kitchen that opens to the family room. AYSI General Contractors worked on the kitchen, and Curtis Herring did the interior design. Alternative Custom Cabinets & Millwork provided and installed the cabinetry. The LeGardeurs’ refrigerator is by Sub-Zero, and the stove is by Viking. Kevin Boudreaux installed the Caribbean pine flooring with a Minwax Dark Walnut finish. The marble countertops from Capital Stone in Baton Rouge fit well with the chandelier and ceiling, tying the room together.

Bill Metcalf and Cindy Chassaniol created a contemporary white kitchen when they renovated their home in 2009.
Alex Tefel of ATH Painter Contractors Inc. served as the kitchen’s contractor, and Shawn O’Brien of Shawn O’Brien Interiors did the interior decorating. Cabinets by Design provided the white Brookhaven cabinets, installed by Becky Richard. The quartz and Corian countertops by Marques Countertops complement the pickled, bleached white flooring installed by ATH. The main lighting is by CX Design of New York and Jonathan Browning Studios of San Francisco, and there is also LED under-cabinet lighting. All appliances are from Cabinets by Design. The shattered glass backsplash from Stafford Tile & Stone tops off the immaculate modern look.

Living downstairs from her daughter and son-in-law, Anne and Bill Grace (see facing page), Anne Montgomery made a sleek modern kitchen after a fire caused by a lightning strike ruined her older one. The white Dynasty by Omega plain-door maple cabinets, stacked from the floor to the ceiling for additional storage space, have under-cabinet lighting. The DCS six-burner gas range allows for multi-tasking, as do the KitchenAid double oven and double dishwasher. The kitchen features a double bowl artisan sink with a Hamat faucet. Cameron Kitchen & Bath Designs and Crane Builders worked together on the Montgomery’s stylish renovation. The annual Rex toast takes place at this Garden District house.
