Choosing Dramatic Lines

In the original house, the entryway was cramped, with a closet being the first thing everyone saw.

We opened the entryway and moved the closet, all while maintaining separation between the entry and the living space.

To draw the attention from the entry into the living room, we used a dramatic, flush, black herringbone ceiling detail across the ceiling. This detail goes all the way to the entertainment area of the main floor.

The eye arrives at a stunning waterfall edge walnut mantle, modern fireplace.

Open Concept Kitchen with Lots of Seating

The dividing wall between the kitchen and living areas was removed to create a larger, integrated entertaining space. The kitchen also has easy access to a new outdoor social space.

A new large skylight directly over the kitchen floods the space with natural light.

The kitchen now has gloss white cabinetry, with matte black accents and the same herringbone detail as the living room, and is tied together with a low maintenance Caesarstone’s white Attica quartz for the island counter top.

This over-sized island has bar stool seating for five, while leaving plenty of room for homework, snacking, socializing, and food prep in the same space.

To maximize space and minimize clutter, we integrated the kitchen appliances into the kitchen island, including a food warming drawer, a hidden fridge, and the dishwasher. This takes the eyes to focus off appliances, and onto the design elements which feed throughout the home.

We also installed a beverage center just beside the kitchen so family and guests can fix themselves a drink, without disrupting the flow of the kitchen.
