As 200-year-old farmhouses go, this kitchen is a big surprise. In keeping with the light, dressy mood of the rest of the house, this room with its new steel arched window, pale gray cabinets and marble countertops answers the call for both a welcoming and highly functional space for entertaining. The minimal Wolf hood and recessed cooktop add to the sleek, sophisticated style for cooking in the country.

Cheerful as it gets is one way to describe this kitchen bathed in morning sun. The room was designed around the tile, a thick, glazed turquoise, and everything else marched in step. The sparkling transparent glass cabinets above the bar sink separate the kitchen from the dining room with a useful pass-through. A vintage Finnish chandelier shines down on it all.

Downsizing for this husband and wife was exciting with the replacement of a 1980's almond laminate kitchen. The new combination of Repose Gray cabinets, back-painted glass backsplashes and leathered Costa Smerelda countertops sets the scene for years to come of spicey creations from this great hostess and cook.

This contemporary kitchen located in the historic Northern Neck of Virginia complements the home's sophisticated interior spaces designed by the owners. Built in the 1970's, the house was conceived by Virginia architect Milton Grigg, who created a central living room from which four wings extend. The cabinets show off two different finishes: high-gloss cream and faux wood foil. The crisp stainless appliances and warm French limestone enhance the palette and texture of the room.

Understated and sleek, this spacious kitchen of darks and neutrals is topped off with a crystal chandelier moved from the dining room. The curves of the hood are accentuated with a band of polished chrome, the counterpoint to the brushed brass hardware on the driftwood and patent leather cream cabinetry.

Several years ago, when the bachelor of this pad found  his bride, she was the perfect

match. Faithful stewards of this historic home, they anoited it

The 1770 House. Since the

nuptials, the couple has more

than doubled the size of the house, including a second addition off the back. The brick fireplace was the very original oven, now in the new butler's pantry, formerly the main kitchen. The addition includes the work horse extension in which Fredericksburg's best

cook creates.

Believe it or not, this sleek kitchen filled with original art blends beautifully with the eclectic interior design of an exact replica of the George Wythe house in Williamsburg, Virginia. The cabinetry is a mix of flat smooth, planked pear and a rough white rift oak island with hand-wrought Rocky Mountain hardware. A SubZero-Wolf kitchen with a French-curved Vent-a-Hood and dark concrete counters is reflected in the tall mirrored pantries. The homeowner refers to the SubZero to the right of the wall ovens as the "tuxedo in the room."

With its five windows, this sweet kitchen was once a dining room, which now allows for more square footage than the original kitchen. Soft blue cabinets, extra-honed White Carrara marble countertops with arched backsplash, and four open shelves are the juxtaposition to the warm, distressed, paneled Sub-Zero and pantry to its left.

 This kitchen became one long room after the powder room, where the range now stands, was demolished. Turquoise St. Charles metal cabinets were replaced by white recessed panel Shaker style, and back-painted glass backsplashes in palest blues and grays.
