This modern Barnhouse kitchen and pantry, designed for a young family transitioning from the city to the suburbs, successfully marries the husband's contemporary taste with the wife's softer aesthetic. Kara Mann collaborated with O'Brien Harris to ensure a seamless design that accommodates both preferences, emphasizing functionality in the heart of the home. 

The kitchen features all the necessary modern amenities. At the same time, the pantry draws inspiration from 1800s working kitchens, which are open to the house and designed with both beauty and functionality in mind. O'Brien Harris incorporated practical elements, such as stainless steel-lined produce cubbies, with the pantry showcasing the London Oak Finish and, in the kitchen, an OBH Painted Finish.
