Classic Kitchen Remodel in California Citrus Country June 23, 2011 By Mary Ann Pickett 49 Comments My cousin, Janice collaborated with designer, K.C. McCook on the recent remodel of her kitchen in their 1930’s Redlands, California home. While I was visiting, my cousin, Billy made a healthier version of Chasen’s Chili using ground turkey instead of beef. Elizabeth Taylor once went to the extravagance of having it flown to Romeon the movie set of “Cleopatra.” Billy added Kahlua to the chili at the end as a secret ingredient (really secret as I could not find any mention of it in the internet recipes). Below, Janice installed a cast iron fireplace backplate similar to these surrounded by Walker Zanger crackled sage-white subway tiles. The arch in the doorway is mimicked throughout the entrance to the stairs and on the double doored pantry. This unused space has built-ins to store Janice’s table linens. Hanging in the kitchen is this beautiful lemon still life that Janice painted. Best wishes, Mary Ann PS. We froze the rest of the chili (which is supposed to make it even better) so I am hoping to be invited back for another great dinner. Also, Remodelaholic is featuring our New Office Loft Space.
