made for entertaining

“We like to entertain, so when designing this house, we wanted an open-concept kitchen, and we wanted a big island … with space and a lot of seating,” Kimberly says of the kitchen in her Santa Fe home. “In order for us to cook easily and have lots of people in here, it just works.” The kitchen was inspired by the colors of an Alexander McQueen scarf, helping to bring together the design of the great room. Kimberly says she used that scarf to source the right materials for the space, like the impressive quartzite backsplash and counters. “It all began to take shape, and we were able to put in lots of cabinets, and the island has an ice machine and dishwasher,” she says. There’s even a workspace where she can work on her computer, increasing the functionality of the space. Kimberly says designing the kitchen “was a labor of love,” and that she was thoughtful about creating a space that would stand up over the years. “It’s timeless,” she says. “I think it won’t need updating.”
