Governor’s Mansion

Published March 23, 2016

Kenan Fishburne, Assistant Professor of Interior Design, has recently completed renovations to the three kitchens at the Florida Governor’s Mansion. The private family kitchen, the chef’s working kitchen and the adjacent serving kitchen, receiving long-needed upgrades in flooring, planning and finishes. To keep a sustainable and historic focus the serving kitchen cabinetry was reused but refurbished with new counters and cabinet fronts. Black and white solid vinyl kitchen flooring, installed diagonally throughout the three areas, provides ease of maintenance and an updated classic nod to the 1956 era when the mansion was completed. Kenan Fishburne became the designer of record for the Governor’s Mansion during the Bush administration when her design firm Main Street Design, Inc. was hired to provide interior design for the library and outside porch additions.
