Mamie and richard S. Favor
2027 Carondelet St.

While renovating their home, Mamie and Richard S. Favor played an active role in the design process, and the mix of antique, European and contemporary elements makes their new 510-square-foot kitchen worth seeing.

Ordered and installed by Rene Bouche, the luscious Calcutta Gold marble completes the countertops and backsplash and is dazzling
when combined with the creamy custom-mixed shade of the cabinets, which together create a sense of unity in the overall color scheme. The exquisite cabinets were designed by Mrs. Favor herself, featuring well-chosen hardware and handmade antiquing, supplied by Cabinets by Design.

The flooring is original pine from 1895. An antique chandelier hangs above the island, and two sleek and modern versions by Villa Vicci allow this kitchen to preserve design elements that are original to the house while incorporating tastefully updated fixtures.
Some of the most unique features of the kitchen include a custom-painted hutch in mustard yellow – color-matched to two sconces framing the fireplace – that houses the microwave, toaster and coffee maker and hidden spice racks alongside the range.

The renovation was overseen by architect Wendy Kerrigan, and Monique Poché Bennett provided kitchen design services.
