62 WBM april 2015 waterford {kitchen two} Katie and Eric Lanier built a new home in which their kitchen became the living room. “The whole entire kitchen is our hub,” Katie says. “We live in this space 24-7. We are always right here.” While Eric prefers a modern aesthetic, Katie describes her style as rustic farmhouse. The couple compromised and allowed their styles to come together in the new space. With two young children, the Laniers wanted to design a large kitchen with several different areas that would allow everyone to be in the same space at the same time. The multi-use room is comprised of ample cook-ing space, a sitting room, a corner for the kids and a wet bar. A large serpentine island bonds to an informal cypress dining table. The Laniers hired Meghan Lewellyn, a kitchen designer with Kitchen and Bath Galleries, to create a person-alized kitchen that combined the multi-use spaces, blended styles and incorporated cus-tom cabinet features tailor-made for cooking. Katie has a passion for cooking, and it was impor-tant that she had a kitchen that allows her to cook while the kids do arts and crafts or homework in the same room. Katie and Eric use the sitting room to do crossword puzzles together every morning. home of distinction
