Martha's Turkey Hill Kitchen
Turkey Hill Kitchen
Martha's former Westport, Connecticut, home saw many renovations. Her kitchen underwent two major ones; Martha and her husband, Andy, took on the first one, and a more professional renovation took place in the late 1990s.
Turkey Hill: Then
Martha originally concentrated on creating a large kitchen with a dining area; the sycamore wood for the cupboards came from Massachusetts, and she found the pot rack at a tag sale -- a nearly identical picture served as the opening spread of Martha's 1982 book, "Entertaining."
Turkey Hill: Later
In the late 1990s, Martha finally had the kitchen professionally renovated; the new color scheme of white and pale green was a welcome change. A 4-by-8-foot island served as a galley (rear) and dining area (foreground).
Turkey Hill: Silverware Drawer
Drawers on the island's dining side organized silver.
Turkey Hill: Storage Cabinets
Two floor-to-ceiling built-in storage cabinets with glass fronts enclosed the dining area like a pantry.
Turkey Hill: More Storage
Martha displayed her turn-of-the-century American yellowware mixing bowls above the refrigerator and freezer; shelving for spices was created in the leftover spaces.
Turkey Hill: Sink Area
Cleaning supplies were stored on large trays that roll forward.
