Designed for a young family with three daughters, this Evanston, IL renovation focuses on a 7,980 square foot single-family home built by the renowned architecture firm Burnham and Root in 1891. Collaborating with Jasmin Reese Interiors, the O’Brien Harris (OBH) team crafted a kitchen from rift and quarter-sawn white oak with a Cerused Steel Finish and natural walnut interiors. The island features a butcher block accent with metal corner cuffs, and OBH also designed the brushed stainless-steel hood with brushed brass banding and corner cuffs.

Green, a favored color for the clients, plays a significant role in the home's design. Benjamin Moore's Gondola Ride green, used in the Butler’s Pantry, extends to the basement wine cellar, creating a seamless connection. This color choice, along with Esmeralda Stone, contributes to a feel-good atmosphere, bridging the elegant dining room to the Family Room and Kitchen. The Butler’s Pantry showcases Waterworks' faucet and cremone bolts for a historical touch, while a Jonathan Adler Horse Lantern adds a personal element from the clients' previous residence.
