Sometimes a person’s work is more than just a job. It becomes who they are, all they think about, and what they crave. Designer Leslie Fogel of Studio Design Partners in Orlando certainly sees her career this way. Leslie, who in fifth grade knew she wanted to be an architect, eventually graduated from Florida State University’s renowned interior design program and started Studio Design Partners in 1999. Her love for the craft allows her to create spaces that reflect her clients’ personalities and styles, yet combine her expertise of function and design.
A Grand, Welcoming Space
The owners of this home in Windermere, Florida live by the mantra that where there are people, there is food. Their Greek and Colombian heritage combine for tasty home-cooked meals, and they love to entertain while also cooking for their family of six. So when Leslie Fogel of Studio Design Partners in Orlando set out to design the large kitchen in this grand home, she knew it needed to function for the cook and also feel like a welcoming space for their family and friends. She pulled it off by using her knowledge of our semi-custom catalog to create a room filled with detailed cabinets that feel more like furniture than a place to put the dishes.
Tradition with Flair
Our Hamilton Door Style, painted Taupe with Russet glaze, is a nod to traditional kitchens, while the exotic granite countertop and backsplash add modern flair.
Pull-out spice racks flank both sides of the professional-grade cooktop to give the home chef easy access to all of her seasonings.
The Beauty of Strength
Our durable base cabinets provide the perfect support for the substantial stacked stone range hood cover.
For Work and Play
The grand island was designed for seating on three sides, but it also serves as an expansive food prep station.
Call it what you want – an appliance garage or bread box – but this space is the perfect countertop hideout.
Call for Customization
Full extension, soft close drawers beneath the cooktop maximize storage space and create quick access to pots and pans.
