                DREAM KITCHEN
 Light and Bright
The kitchen now gleams, thanks to plenty of new windows and freshly painted white walls and ceiling beams. The countertops are the same light-gray honed marble as the island. In keeping with the theme, the backsplash was done in white subway tiles. “Everyone says, ‘You must have added on—it’s so much bigger.’ That’s just the power of white,” says Walter.
When planning her first kitchen, three cabinet dealers tried to talk her out of the all-white palette. “They felt it was too stark,” she recalls. “Another thing I learned was to trust what you really want and not be talked out of it.”
It now serves as a perfect backdrop for family meals, which they share at a large table the couple bought as newlyweds. A wall of cabinets next to the table is set up as a wet bar and a hot-and-cold beverage station. They are ideally situated, as the space opens into
the family room. Guests often gather there when they entertain.
Just as Walter envisioned, the new kitchen has become the hub of family life, as well as her culinary domain.
