Eliza put a fresh spin on the utilitarian kitchens of early-20th-century manor houses she had admired in Europe. “I love to cook, and I wanted a kitchen that would function properly but not be overly modern.” White subway tiles cover the walls nearly to the ceiling, and appliances are white rather than too-21st-century stainless steel. Eliza and daughter Ella, 10, often bake together, so Eliza designed a spacious island with storage for baking supplies. At the heart of the island is a Dutch baking cabinet Eliza found in Europe. “It was made to sit on a counter and has glass containers that pull out for flour and sugar,” she explains. “We literally built the island around that piece.”
