Sub-Zero and Wolf's 2010-2012 Kitchen Design Contest. After years of dedication to work and raising a family, this investment professional and his wife, a gifted photographer, decided to reward themselves with a new home in Highland Park, Texas designed by architect Cole Smith, FAIA, for welcoming children and grandchildren, and hosting social events in a style inspired by one of their favorite places: Northern Italy. The architect's wife, interior designer Sherry Hayslip, discovered 17th-century columns at a London antique dealer for the fireplace and had local artisans add a few flourishes. The final product inspired the entire kitchen from the ceiling beams to the delicately hand-painted backsplash tiles, with the main focal point of an elaborate steel, bronze and brass pot rack designed by Hayslip and Smith, with the Italian words for herbs pierced into its sides, and hand-hammered victory wreaths that support decorative plates custom-painted with scenes that relate to specific memories for the homeowners. Hayslip created several preparation areas with sinks for multiple cooks, plus a generous Wolf 60-inch Dual Fuel range with electric ovens plus a separate Wolf single oven so when the frequent impulse to bake up a storm strikes, they're ready to roll. Sub-Zero integrated refrigerator, freezer and refrigerator drawers respectfully blend into the background of this highly embellished room.
