Flipflopping the kitchen and dining room, and adding 22-sq.ft. made a world of difference—a totally revamped first-floor living experience.
A striking bank of clear vertical grain fir cabinets ties the kitchen and dining area together. The millwork maximizes storage and supports entertaining while providing the perfect space for an artistic touch. The warmth of the cabinets is complemented by the rich fir floors. White accents and chromes finishes add to the mix making this space a modern masterpiece.
A large window and sliding glass doors flood the space with natural light and provide enticing views and easy access to the outdoors. Built-in bookshelves bookend the millwork wall—nice nooks for cookbooks, keys and charging stations.
A recessed alcove built into the cabinetry in the dining room serves the dual function of both buffet counter and art display nook.
The stair design was one detail that was not quite right. A little more massing and traditional elements give it substance and a better presence at the entry.
The fireplace wall can make or break the look and feel of a living area. The right trim transformed this space. The addition of a picture rail pops the impact of the cove moulding. A modern facelift to the fireplace includes a custom blackened steel fireplace surround and green brick cladding.
“Working with Lisa was enjoyable and easy, and the renovations now feel like they have always been this way and always should have been this way. This is our forever home, in large part because no other kitchen on the market is as perfect for us as this one.”
