Modern Traditionalists: How the ‘Renovation Husbands’ Honored the Roots of their Boston Victorian
While renovating their traditional Victorian home in Boston, husband design-duo and DIY-experts David & Stephen St. Russell sought to marry the traditional style of the Victorian home with the comforts of modern living after deciding the home’s new Scandinavian-style kitchen clashed fundamentally with the spirit and history of the home.
When shopping for the appliances, it didn't take the Renovation Husbands long before concluding that Fisher & Paykel was the ideal appliance brand to work with across their kitchen. Not only beautiful to use but superior in quality, Fisher & Paykel’s integrated appliance options allowed the husbands to combine industry-leading technology with a more traditional aesthetic. From the 36" Integrated French door refrigerator to the innovative double DishDrawer, panel installation was seamless while the appliances wowed with seamless performance and operation.
To maximize usability and functionality while maintaining a more compact footprint, David and Stephen opted for a 30” cooking setup with a contemporary induction cooktop and wall oven installed under-counter instead of a traditional range. The couple is now a big fan of induction cooking – offering a more efficient way to cook and easy clean-up. Given the push for sustainability in a number of municipalities in the Northeast, induction cooking continues to lead the charge for efficiency in the heart of the home – the kitchen.
