In many ways, the kitchen is the heart of the home—it's where we gather, where we entertain, where meals and memories are made, and where we nourish our bodies and souls. For Rachel Parcell, founder of the popular lifestyle destination Pink Peonies, the kitchen was an important part of the 10,000-square-foot, six-bedroom, five-and-a-half bath home that she and her husband built from the ground up. "We spent a lot of time designing the kitchen because we knew how much time we would be spending in it," she told MyDomaine. "My husband and I both come from large families, and we love to entertain!"

Parcell's spacious French country–style kitchen is a reflection of her feminine and classic style. When designing the space, she wanted to capture the light and airy feel of the all-white marble and brass fixtures in her grandmother's kitchen. With its marble backsplash and traditional white cabinetry, Parcell's kitchen achieves that old-fashioned look while still giving off a sleek, modern sensibility.
