As independent producer Jane Owen continues to work with WNIN TV on its program called “Evansville’s Great Kitchens,” she says kitchens are an extension of their owners’ personalities.
Owen began working in February, interviewing homeowners from around the Tri-State, including Evansville, Jasper, Ind., Henderson, Ky., and Owensboro, Ky. The program is slated to premiere in June.
During one of Owen’s recent interviews, she met Karen Nix of Henderson. Nix has owned her home since August 2010 and calls her kitchen the “center of activity in her home.” While both of her sons are now grown and out of the house, Nix says she isn’t cooking as much as she used to, but her kitchen “is a warm and inviting area that we still use a lot.”
Nix says her kitchen reflects her personality through the small keepsakes stored there that she has collected over the years.
“I love seeing all the personal touches incorporated into the kitchens of custom homes,” says Owen. “Those touches really reflect the personality of the owner and Karen’s kitchen is a great example of that. From the gorgeous travertine sink, lovely iron chandeliers, and detailed molding throughout, Karen’s kitchen has a European feel with the Southern flair of gracious living. Her kitchen is a great example of some of the kitchens we’ll be showing in our ‘Dream Home’ episode of ‘Evansville’s Great Kitchens’ this summer.”
