Kitchen: Christophers

A Kitchen Bedecked in Blue Pearl and Gleaming Stainless ~

Blue pearl granite countertops cap an elegant kitchen with stainless steel appliances and crisp white cabinets. My clients love of blue and white is evident in the hallmark wallcovering.

Her affection for gardening is showcased in the custom stove backsplash tiles featuring favorite botanicals. Functional and formal this kitchen is ideal for prepping family feasts and entertaining friends.

About the Client:

This charming couple have been clients for 18 years. I started working for him in his bachelor quarters. Shortly afterwards he became engaged and I met his wife to be and, luckily, we saw eye to eye immediately. We have decorated three houses together.

About the Project:

They clients live in a beautiful brick Georgian that was built in the 1930’s. It is a beautifully planned house and a dream to make into a beautiful home for them and their two teenage boys. Mrs. Christophers has always loved blue and white so we have incorporated it in her favorite rooms. We also rebuilt and decorated their beach house together. We kept all the charm of the original beach house that had been in the family for generations but made it easy to keep up and very comfortable.


“Gillian recognizes our taste and style and all the many different elements together to create a lovely, quietly elegant home . She enjoys incorporating all our loved items into a fresh new design. She is a wonderful person to work with and has become a dear family friend. After all, we have worked together for 18 years and three houses!”
