Above: Zachary Leung submitted his Rustic & Refined kitchen in Toronto, chosen by guest judge Sam Hamilton, who said: “A lovely renovation—what an extraordinary improvement from the old kitchen space! The hutch is a nice counterpoint to the very modern island.”

Above: Ellen Lundquist submitted her Scarsdale, New York, kitchen, which she called Two Shades of Gray in a French Eclectic. It was chosen as a finalist by Sam Hamilton, who said: “Such a lovely labor of love this kitchen restoration/renovation must have been. The space is a wonderful balance of the original kitchen of the ’20s and a modern, functional family kitchen. I like the choice of keeping the tile simply on the floor, particularly since there is quite a grid created by the windows.”

Above: Heidi Lachapelle entered her West End Eclectic Kitchen in Portland, Maine, which was chosen by Sam Hamilton: “What a beautifully crafted renovation. I love the color choice and consistency in materials. Must be a joy to entertain from and work in—such a gracious amount of space. The rug and vintage butcher block are a lovely addition of personality and warmth.” Photograph by Erin Little.

Above: Ana Castillo entered her Casa de Castillo Kitchen in Kealakekua, Hawaii, which was chosen by both Remodelista editor Julie Carlson and judge Sam Hamilton, who said: “This kitchen is probably the most provocative to me as far as a kitchen I’d like to visit and cook in. It feels at one with the locale and the owners and creators.” I love the use of corrugated metal as a design element; the vibe of this space is perfect for island living.”

Above: James entered his 1909 Craftsman in South Seattle, which was chosen as a finalist by Julie Carlson: “The owners opened up and modernized the kitchen in their 1909 Seattle Craftsman; we love the carefully conceived palette, which includes ebonized ash cabinets, honed black granite countertops, uncoated brass faucet, white oak herringbone floor, Carrara marble backsplash, and white oak ledge. Bonus points: They found the Bertazzoni range on Craigslist.”

Have you chosen your favorite? Then head to the Amateur Kitchen category page to vote.
