Don’t you want to cook in this kitchen? Or gather with a group of friends sampling wine? I would! We love how this kitchen turned out with the sage counter, white cabinets and a dark wood island to ground the space. So much storage and counter space. The beautiful comfy stools are a perfect spot for a quick breakfast, bite or to just sit and talk with the cook.
We worked on this full house remodel for almost a year! This is one of our favorite clients/friends to date. A lovely family’s second home to enjoy their extended family and grandchildren in. The task was to create an open light and airy space that is conducive and safe for little ones running around. No museum house here but a lovely lived in and collected home, our specialty!
To the right of the kitchen we had a custom banquette built with high performance fabric so that little grandchildren can’t make a mess. This makes for really comfortable seating and optimizes the space so well. (see pictures below of the area).
In the living room/dining room, we created a multi-purpose space that again is very serene and casually elegant and family friendly. We provide space in the built-ins to store toys, puzzles etc when not being used. The dining table is perfect for a family dinner or to play cards or games on. The built-ins we styled beautifully with new items as well as some of their collected pieces that are special to them. We LOVE incorporating old and new in all our design so that it is a true reflection of the family that lives or works there.
The master bathroom had an amazing transformation. It was completely gutted and new marble tile installed on walls and floors. A shower and tub were added as well as his and hers vanities with plenty of storage. This is a spa retreat in the making.
The master bedroom has all the blue tones this family loves and that also ties in the beautiful waterways right outside their window. It brings the outside in so seamlessly. There is plenty of space to sit and read a book and relax or rest. The beautiful wallpaper that covers the feature wall is a gorgeous seagrass that is so elegant and understated and provides such beautiful texture to the wall too.
All the bedrooms got a refresh and their bathrooms too. We will feature those in another post. Too much to see in this beautiful home.
Hope you love this home as much as we do. It feels lived in, collected and loved just like we strive on all our designs.
