Beth & Jimmie Colon
1566 Calhoun St.
During Hurricane Isaac, as power outages lasted weeks throughout the Greater New Orleans area, Beth and Jimmie Colon’s exquisite kitchen remained cool and inviting thanks to 30 solar panels the couple installed during the renovation project on their circa 1890s home in 2011.
This kitchen can outsmart a hurricane and is also the perfect mix of technology, tradition and modern style. The original pine flooring was preserved and finished with a custom stain, a dark charcoal. The rest of the snowy-white design elements include Calacatta polished marble countertops on both the main counters and the spacious island, with room for both seating and meal prep. The cabinets are Brookhaven I Springfield Recessed cabinets in Nordic White supplied by Cabinets by Design. They create an up-to-date, elegant sense of style.
The Colons purchased only deluxe stainless-steel appliances, including a Thermador 48-inch range with a double oven, a 24-inch refrigerator and freezer, a Whirlpool reverse osmosis water purifier and a V-Line Beverage Center.
Some top design features include a state-of-the-art sound system that seamlessly integrates with an iPhone or iPad and a unique backsplash that features slab marble with a curved/radius wall covered in water-jet-cut oval marble mosaic, supplied by Stafford Tile & Stone.
