1.Calm and Bright
When Katy Varney along with her husband, Dave Goetz, began renovating Dave’s childhood Nashville home, their love of entertaining and cooking inﬂuenced every facet of the kitchen, that was opened and brightened up with two colors of white (one on walls, one on cabinetry).
A 13-by-4-foot island provides ample prep room, divides work spaces for cooking and cleanup, and serves as a spot for casual grazing or diningroom.

Architect Michael Marchetti designed a 22-foot pitched and planked ceiling to add height to the space, in addition to allow in more light in the gable window. In keeping with the house’s historic character, the white oak ﬂoorboards were stained to take on a classic look.
