Carter Republic House / Kitchen

Designers: Jill Jarrett and Lauren Villano

Once owned by a descendant of William Penn, Carter Republic House is a charming 1790’s farm home that was begging for a thoughtful kitchen remodel to restore authenticity while modernizing the gathering room. Modern functionality and beauty set the stage for quick meals on weeknights, elegant Saturday dinner parties, as well as canning the garden’s bounty on Sunday afternoons. Custom cabinetry was designed to work with the existing, original hardwood floors, while also complimenting the professional appliances. Distressed soapstone counters and backsplashes along with custom metal and barn wood shelving add practicality and warmth. The sink, faucet, and hardware were carefully selected to unite all of the room’s elements.

"Jarrett Design exceeds the cookie cutter designs often seen and advertised in magazines. They provided a patient, creative, and knowledgeable environment that allowed me to work through the renovation/redesign process at my own pace. I would highly recommend them!"
