Gracious Living-White & Black with Butler Pantry, Geneva, IL

When first seen by the new homeowner, this open-concept ranch was lacking definition. What it did have was loads of potential including views of dedicated open spaces and the nearby golf course. The small footprint of the kitchen was expanded by moving the laundry facilities to the walk-out basement and creating a new butler pantry to house the coffee and microwave stations away from the main work triangle. Additional pantry storage and simple coat rack are tucked from view opposite the butler pantry. Charming details in accessories play up the homeowner's love of the French aesthetic including cabinet hardware, lighting, drapery and French Country legs.
