Episode 4: Southern Living Showcase Home – Prep Kitchen


We are now in the prep kitchen, and this is
my favorite room of the whole house. It was a utility room and still is a utility
room. Silverton decided to solve the problem of
the mess being out in the entertainment kitchen in bringing it back here. They added appliances so that you could actually
do all your work back here and bake it out in the real kitchen. We put green in this room because it’s a very
relaxing color, but it’s an interesting green. It has a little bit of gray to it. And so it’s called Retreat, it’s a Sherman
Williams color, and it’s a very restful color, it’s a really pretty green. And the walls are Pearly White, and the ceiling
is Pure White. And we do a differentiation between the ceiling
and the walls, of which it’s a very subtle differentiation but it gives dimension to
the room. The cabinets are an incredible addition to
this room because they all go to the ceiling. And not only that, we put some open cabinets
in it so you can grab stuff off quickly. The cabinets also have windows in them, like
little window panes that have just a little bit of reflectivity to it, and you can display
things in your cabinets, which makes it nice. The flooring is extremely unique. The flooring, believe it or not, is all cement. It is little bricks to mimic a brick 3/8 inch
thick. And you put it down like you would put down
any tile. It’s indestructible. You cannot hurt this floor. The countertops in this kitchen are unique. The slabs that we got of marble actually have
two sides to them. One is polished and one is honed. And in here we put the honed side up. And of course it has a film on it, so it’s
all protected, so you can’t destruct this. This is indestructible. So now you can use marble even in your prep
kitchens. It’s wonderful. The inspiration from this room actually came
out of my own frustration of having company come over and I’m trying to clean up at the
last second. And so my blood pressure is high, the house
is a mess. But now you have a place where you can put
your mess, back here. You can do all this and walk out and not worry
about it, and you’re as relaxed as your company is.
