Chokers, Tommy Hilfiger, Wynona Rider. The ’90s may be back but Kirsten really wanted them to get out – and stay out – of her kitchen. With a little help from her husband, she was able to create a classically cool galley kitchen that won’t be going out of style anytime soon.

From Kirsten: When we first looked at this home to buy, I remember thinking that the biggest transformation needed to be the kitchen. It was dark, too enclosed and feeling very 1990s.

The kitchen is a galley kitchen and we wanted to keep it a galley kitchen. We really liked the structure and scale. Also, because my husband did almost all of the work himself, he didn’t want to move any plumbing or electrical around.

Thank you, Kirsten!
