Junior League of New Orleans Kitchen Tour

(page 3 of 12)

Carolyn Elder & Walter Christy
1553 Calhoun St.

A contemporary kitchen with artistic flair, Carolyn Elder and Walter Christy’s 240-square-foot space has enough room for meal preparation and also some creativity. The kitchen was renovated in 2011 and is a breath of fresh air, both to the 1895 home itself and to guests entering the room for the first time.

The octagonal-shaped layout of the room wonderfully enhances the stylish and cheerful atmosphere, with a white-and-tan palette and a pale blue-green accent. Both the countertops and backsplash are made of a luxurious Calacatta gold marble, while the backsplash is specially arranged in a custom marble design by Randy Bustamante.

Floor-to-ceiling maple cabinets with raised panel doors in Antique White from Artisan Kitchen and Bath are the highlight of this kitchen. The tan porcelain tile flooring with rectified edges for a seamless look is supplied by Stafford Tile & Stone, creating a magnificent foundation for the rest of the space while ever-so-slightly moderating the luminous tones of the cabinets and countertops.

The stainless-steel appliances include a luxury Jenn-Air refrigerator, freezer and cooktop.

A special design element in this space is the captivating custom-designed glass mural, adding a splash of cool blue-green and brown and featuring a nature scene suggestive of Oriental-style art, designed by Stafford Tile and constructed in New York.   

The renovation project was overseen by designer Kerry Flanagan of Artisan Kitchen & Bath.
