Casual Farmhouse Looks, Pro-Style Amenities

When homeowners Dana and James Simpson first laid eyes on this Connecticut country cottage, its farmhouse charm was nearly hidden by a mishmash of funky additions.
The couple consulted their friend, architect Rafe Churchill, who guided them through a succession of changes, including a remodel of the kitchen. “The bones of the kitchen were great, because of the open floor plan and the wonderful 1-by-8 tongue and groove boards,” says Churchill. “It was really about figuring out how to make it more efficient.” 
James is a trained chef, and a 48-inch Wolf range and 48-inch Sub-Zero refrigerator were nonnegotiable on his end. Churchill kept the room’s original footprint but reconfigured the layout of the appliances, the cabinetry and the island. This not only maximized efficiency but gave the kitchen  balance, opened it up and lent it a casual farmhouse look that was cohesive with the rest of the home.
