House Beautiful’s ninth annual Kitchen of the Year was brought to life by Atlanta-based designer Matthew Quinn. His inspiration: the style of the homeowner, an immigration lawyer who lives in Atlanta’s Buckhead neighborhood with her eight-month-old twins.

“We’ve truly customized this year’s House Beautiful Kitchen of the Year from the ground up,” says Quinn. “The Kitchen is designed with beautiful elements that I myself use on a daily basis, and the space represents my ultimate vision for the homeowner and her sons—it’s durable and easy to clean, and brings the family together in the home, all while evoking a sense of serenity and splendor.”
