- This couple wanted to refresh the husband’s 1960s family home and transform it into a modern, comfortable space that truly reflected their personal tastes.
- A mishmash of materials and patterns throughout the kitchen, foyer and transition areas left the couple yearning for a more cohesive look.
- The kitchen felt dark, drab and confined, making it impossible for the couple to cook and entertain comfortably.
- The formal dining room felt too traditional for a vacation home and shrunk the already limited kitchen space, diminishing its functionality.
We scrapped the formal dining room in favor of built-in banquette seating and installed a large kitchen island that provides ample storage and barstool seating. This maximizes space and is perfect for casual family dining and entertaining.
With the anchor wall freed up in the original dining space, we incorporated a bold backsplash in the kitchen that acts as a fun focal point and conversation starter.
To enhance flow from the foyer to the kitchen, we added a pantry with built-in cabinetry that features pull-out and open floating shelves for displaying favorite serving accessories and cooking books.
We stripped the clutter of cabinetry from the transition hallway that leads from the foyer into the kitchen, replacing them with lower cabinets and a beverage cooler. This sleek and stylish mini bar layout alleviates congestion in the kitchen and gives guests a cozy spot to mix and mingle!
We designed a custom metal and glass front door to let natural light spill into the foyer and transition space, giving the homeowners that bright and inviting space they envisioned.
