space: a Texan kitchen with metal-framed doors

The owner of this kitchen is designer Pamela Pierce, who lives in a 1920s house in Houston, Texas. When remodelling her home she wanted a kitchen with a European feel, exposed beams and lots of light. A coal shaft that couldn't be removed restricted the usable space so to make the kitchen feel bigger she added the metal-framed doors that open to the patio. I couldn't picture this kitchen without them; they were what drew me in, and the limestone flooring.

This is one of those kitchen photos in my files that I find myself viewing quite regularly. It wasn't until I found a pdf file on the website of Chateau Domingue, a company that provided the marble worktops, that I realised that I had seen this home before. The file contains a feature in Western Interiors & Design and I recognised a photo of open shelves instantly. Earlier this year I had pinned it from Sarah of Haute Design, who shared more photos from this same house.

  1. I often dream of having a rustic country place with metal-framed doors like these. I love the industrial yet welcoming vibe they afford to a space.
    Lovely.
