Kitchens $100,000–$200,000 White Wows JULIE EVANS JEI Design, Austin, TX Designed for family gatherings as well as entertaining on a large scale, this white kitchen, designed by Julie Evans of JEI Design, is anything but ordinary. Evans transformed this expansive, 655-sq.-ft. kitchen space into a modern social hub that reflects beauty and efficiency in its design. The unmistakable focal point of this space is the Bardiglio marble. Once it was selected for the countertops, it was decided it would also be used behind the cooktop on the rear wall – book-matching it for maximum effect. It acts as a striking backdrop for the Gaggenau cooktop and Broan exhaust hood. To give the room a clean, modern appearance and let the mar- ble take center stage, Evans chose custom contemporary Honea cabinetry in a white gloss finish. Cabinets abound in the space, providing ample storage for daily-use items and entertaining pieces. Stainless steel ovens and a microwave from Gaggenau enhance the modern vibe, and a paneled Gaggenau refrigerator, freezer and dishwasher blend seamlessly with the cabinetry. The island, also topped with Bardiglio marble, features cabin- etry finished in a complementary rich gray tone and a Blanco sink paired with a Dornbracht faucet. Stunning Waldorf chandeliers from Arteriors that mimic starbursts illuminate the island. The kitchen space also features a walk-in pantry and a bar area. The bar features dark wood cabinets, black countertops and a marble linear backsplash tile. A prep sink and faucet, dishwash- er and KitchenAid undercounter refrigerator are also incorporat- ed into the space.
