A Renovated Kitchen

When the couple moved to Ojai full-time in 2011, Kelley had had enough of making do. She devised a redesign that made more of the kitchen's space while preserving its layout to avoid replumbing and rewiring. She hired a cabinetmaker. Two months later, she had a new modern-country kitchen. Enlarged windows and glass pendants now bathe the room with light. Simple L-shaped floating shelves open corners once cramped with cabinets, and soapstone and marble counters offer yards of prep space. Storage is tucked below, or in a custom-made island, or in tall side-by-side pantries.

"In this kitchen, I only keep what I use," says Kelley, "and everything has a place."
