Stately Home with a Kitchen Remodel to Match

This 1990s Pueblo revival/Santa Fe style home emanated grandeur with its abundant wood detailing. With their kitchen remodel, Neubleu Interior Design’s clients aimed to update the home while paying homage to its distinctive architectural style. The clients also hoped to make the space slightly more indicative of their personal style, with cleaner, crisper lines. 

Erica Ortiz Berke, principal of Neubleu Interior Design, was tasked with complementing the residence’s strong presence and creating a kitchen and pantry that carried equal visual weight. In doing so, she had the opportunity to craft a truly unforgettable kitchen, brimming with personality, meticulously thought-out details, and functionality. One standout feature is the coffee station, adorned with stunning Tabarka tile that seamlessly extends into the iron upper cabinetry. The iron detail is further echoed in the hand-forged light fixtures specially made for this space. Overall, the kitchen exudes sophistication and attention to detail. Neubleu even repurposed an antique door to clad the refrigerator door, adding a touch of charm and character. 


Meeting the homeowners’ vision required structural updates as well. To move the stove from its old location to the new, contractors had to relocate gas lines, ventilation, and electrical systems, and seamlessly repair the faux finishes of plaster walls. Converting a standard pantry to a butler’s pantry also necessitated moving electrical components so that the space could be part of the working kitchen. The project, which took place in 2021 and 2022, came in slightly over budget due to the increasing cost of materials post-pandemic.   


Ortiz Berke says she was thrilled to have the opportunity to bring the homeowners’ vision to life and to create a kitchen that will undoubtedly leave a  
lasting impression.
