This kitchen alcove used to hold a washer and dryer. Designers moved both to a new laundry room and turned this space into a much-needed pantry. Painting the shelves gray is a tasteful way to dress them up.
Situated between the breakfast nook and formal dining room is the butler's pantry, which doubles as a custom bar. The designers wanted the space to feel strong and masculine, so they outfitted the walls with Phillip Jeffries wallpaper that mimics the look of a tweed suit and added a cool, black-and-white treatment to the ceiling.
Tucked behind the chic, family-friendly kitchen is an open pantry. Open shelving is perfect for keeping everyday dishes handy, and cool gray cabinets provide much-needed storage. The pantry also houses the wine refrigerator.
This roomy gray pantry features white floor-to-ceiling shelves, hardwood floors and bench seats. A green area rug adds a pop of color, while a small window allows natural light to illuminate the space.
