If you don’t find the Barrott family gathered around the wood-topped island in their kitchen, you’ll find them enjoying the benefits of living just steps from Tampa Bay. “Boating, fishing, surfing—you name it,” says Helen Barrott. “We’re interested in almost anything that involves the water.”

Helen and her husband, Chris Barrott, moved their family from Ohio to St. Petersburg nine years ago. “We both grew up around the water and we have wonderful memories from our childhoods,” Helen explains. “We wanted our children to have those same experiences.”

They turned to Nancy Braamse, CMKBD, owner of Olde World Cabinetry and contractor Daniel Ashline, to help them transform their kitchen into a nautical-inspired culinary haven
