“A very modern, unique twist on an old classic,” is how Christine Schillinger describes her Columbus, Ohio kitchen. Located in historic German Village, Christine’s brick home was built in the early 1900s, but her gourmet kitchen was designed and remodeled by the previous owner in 2010. Christine and her husband, Steve, moved to Ohio from California in 2015 and quickly fell in love with German Village.
“It’s a great place to live in the city, definitely,” says Christine, “And the people here are just great…the people in Ohio in general are wonderful,” she adds.
Featuring gray limestone floor tiles arranged in a herringbone pattern, chic black cabinetry and white marble countertops, this kitchen would certainly be any cook’s paradise. Ample glass-front cabinets not only attractively display dishware, but also make it easy to locate what is needed when cooking.
Christine and Steve are more than happy to share their kitchen with their guests. “We definitely love having people here,” says Christine. In addition to periodic dinner parties, they host an annual Christmas gathering with their friends, as well as an Easter brunch every year which feeds around forty-five people. Last year, Christine hosted the German Village House & Garden Show dinner, totaling about twenty people.
“One of the things I love about this house and this neighborhood is just the sense of community that German Village has, and being surrounded by other people who also like to cook helps makes this really a fun kitchen to play in,” she says.
