Small but Sophisticated Kitchen Updated in This Memphis Home

It’s a commendable duo who have a small child, keep their kitchen spotless, and regularly host parties at their home. That’s exactly what Lindsey Black’s clients—a pair of doctors, one of whom is a talented pianist—wanted from their new home in East Memphis, Tennessee. They chose it for its traditional feel, mature landscaping, and good neighborliness—not its layout; so it took work to get there.

Architect David Anderson reconfigured the kitchen to face the backyard, transforming the former space into a small but fully equipped pantry and the former hearth room (complete with fireplace, which has since been removed) into the family’s everyday kitchen. The black accentuates the cozy eight-foot ceilings and the new layout with dark walnut finishes, moody colors, and French country-inspired details. The result is a subdued, beautiful room that’s ready for an impromptu cocktail hour.
