T&S Home Features

Heart of the Home

Kitchens are often places of great joy and comfort. That is never more true than at the JDRF Kitchen Tour. The annual event gives St. Louisans an inside look at some of the city’s most stunning kitchens—along with tasty bites from local restaurants and caterers—all while supporting research for Type 1 Diabetes. “The tour is a great way to get ideas for your own kitchen if you’re thinking of updating or remodeling, and all proceeds benefit JDRF,” says JDRF development coordinator Laura Roeder. “This year, our fundraising goal is $25,000.”

Town&Style is proud to be a media sponsor of the event, which takes place Nov. 9. The tour will take guests through 10 different houses along the central corridor of St. Louis, including a home that once belonged to Johnny Londoff with a newly renovated kitchen that Roeder says you won’t want to miss. Tickets are $40 and can be purchased by calling 314.748.7067 or visiting tinyurl.com/jdrfkitchentour2017. To whet your appetite before the tour, T&S has a sneak peek of six featured kitchens.

audubon drive, clayton
This 1929 home’s kitchen flows with the rest of the house with details that pop. The new peninsula, cabinets that match the old doors throughout the house, and a beautifully unique hutch provide formality as well as a functional, livable design for everyday life.

The homeowners are empty-nesters who wanted a new, fresh space without having to move. The results are light and bright! The space is big enough for meals when their kids visit but also cozy and intimate for coffee for two.

It’s impossible to tell that designers had to deal with numerous restrictions and limited space in this Clayton home. The result is the epitome of glamour and elegance. The grand island has room for six with enough space to enjoy a family meal.
